WE man in court for violating contact order

A White Earth man made his first appearance Tuesday in Becker County District Court on a felony charge of violating a domestic no contact order.

Peter Eugene St. Clair, 24, of 2231 230th Ave., P.O. Box 266, White Earth, was charged in connection with a July 30 incident in Detroit Lakes.

According to the criminal complaint, St. Clair was a passenger in the back seat of a vehicle that was stopped on Willow Avenue in Detroit Lakes because an officer identified the driver as being wanted for arrest.

The driver was a woman with whom St. Clair had been prohibited from having any contact as the result of a domestic abuse no contact order.

St. Clair also has two prior domestic violence-related convictions on his record. He has been released on $10,000 bond pending his next court appearance, at an Aug. 20 omnibus hearing.
