According to the criminal complaint, police were called on Tuesday, Oct. 4, to a residence in the 3300 block of Michigan Boulevard by a man who said Higa was at his house and that he had a restraining order against her. Higa was in the man’s driveway and refused to leave until officers arrived.

Higa was assigned a $750 signature bond and ordered to stay away from the man. She will next be in court on Dec. 12 for a status conference.
