EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A man arrested last week for dealing meth was released on bond Tuesday, then a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Records show 52-year-old Michael Hagedorn was released Tuesday on a $20,000 cash bond.

They also show Gibson County Judge Robert Krieg has been appointed as a Special Judge in the case.

Also on Tuesday, a warrant was issued for Hagedorn’s arrest for violating the terms of his release.

The warrant shows Hagedorn admitted to using meth, cocaine, and alcohol after posting bond.

Hagedorn was booked back into jail late Wednesday morning and appeared in court on Thursday.

The man who tells us he’s the new owner of N.O.W. Counseling says Hagedorn was the director and an addiction counselor there, but stepped away about a year ago.

Police say they had several tips and had been doing surveillance on Hagedorn.

The special judge appointed in the case ruled for Hagedorn to be held in custody until his next hearing on Feb. 16.
