Lisa Hanson, the owner of the Interchange Bistro in Albert Lea, was arrested today following a court order stemming from her defiance of Governor Walz' Emergency Orders. She was on vacation in Clear Lake, IA and was arrested by local police after receiving a tip from a person in her hometown. Lisa posted bond and is already free.
This marks the first person to be criminally prosecuted by Governor Walz' administration and the first business owner arrested who refused to follow orders. At the time of her defiance, Iowa was wide open for business just 20 miles south of Albert Lea.
Action 4 Liberty will do a Facebook Live tonight at 8:30 pm to provide more details about the arrest and the case.
