ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Minnesota forward Trevor Mbakwe was arrested and taken to jail Monday night after violating a Harassment Restraining Order, according to St. Paul Police.

The 21-year-old was booked into the Ramsey County Law Enforcement Center (LEC) on a misdemeanor charge.

According to police, a St. Paul woman reported that Mbakwe posted a message on her Facebook page Sunday, which was a violation of a current Harassment Restraining Order out of Dakota County.

St. Paul Police then notified the University of Minnesota Police, who arrested Mbakwe without incident at a home on the 1000 block of 29th Avenue SE in Minneapolis at about 7 p.m. He was transported to the LEC and turned over to St. Paul Police.

His bail is set at $500.
