U.S. Marshals arrested Evelyn Holden for violating the terms of her federal release, Tuesday morning.

One of the terms was that she could not violate any local, state or federal laws, but Holden, 52, violated those terms when she was arrested by the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office in late December for alledgedly attempting to bribe a Baton Rouge man and threatening him. She was charged with extortion, improper telephone communications and intimidating a witness.

Holden will appear in federal court, Wednesday morning at 10:00a.m., before a magistrate judge to determine whether she will be released or remain in federal custody until her next hearing.

Evelyn Holden is the sister of Baton Rouge Mayor-President Kip Holden. She pleaded guilty in a federal bribery probe in November, admitting to her role in conspiring with Flitcher Bell, a former senior Baton Rouge City Court prosecutor, and others to fix criminal and traffic matters in City Court.
