MARQUETTE, Mich. (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 Nov. 8 in federal court in Marquette.

Postells of Braham, Minn., 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.

She couldn’t be reached for comment. There is no phone number listed for her. Isle Royale is a national park in the northwest corner of Lake Superior.
