According to court records, on March 30, Wasche violated a harassment restraining order issued to protect a woman and three children, by driving a red Ford pickup truck slowly past their home in Detroit Lakes seven or eight times. The order for protection requires Wasche to stay at least 200 feet away from the home, which is about 40 feet from the street he repeatedly drove past on.

He has more than half a dozen convictions for violating restraining orders from 2018 to 2021, according to court records.

On May 5, bail or bond was set at $80,000 without conditions, or $40,000 bail or bond with conditions.

May 17, Wasche posted a $40,000 bond and was released with conditions that include no contact with the woman or children.


His next court appearance is set for June 5 before District Court Judge Charles Glasrud.
