UPPER PENINSULA (WWJ/AP) – A federal judge in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is threatening to have a Minnesota woman arrested if she doesn’t appear in court for a littering violation at Isle Royale National Park.

Judge Timothy Greeley says Ginger Postells has been given more than a year to take care of the matter but has missed at least two court hearings. The next is November 8 in federal court in Marquette.

Postells, who lives in Braham, Minnesota, is accused of littering at an Isle Royale campground in July 2010.

The government says $225 would have closed the case, but Postells hasn’t paid.
