Gaarsland Arrested for Second Drug Offense this Month

The wife of a man who was beaten to death outside of a Fargo bar has been arrested for the second time this month.

Laura Gaarsland has been charged with two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Earlier this month, Gaarsland was arrested for child neglect and other drug charges.

Gaarsland’s husband, Joey, died after a fight in the parking lot between Speck’s and Rick’s bars in Fargo last year.

Several people were charged in the case including Jason Oien who is scheduled to go on trial on Tuesday.
