Main St. on a warrant for revocation of pre-trial release supervision on an original charge of possession of a controlled substance, third offense. He was transported to the Washington County Jail and served the warrant.

Boileau was previously sentenced to 10 years in prison after Washington police discovered a rolling meth lab on the Washington square and was arrested again Sunday morning for a pretrial violation. He was arrested In July on charges of a pretrial violation on a charge of possession of a controlled substance.
