According to court records, on April 26, 2020, Hariluk was a passenger in a green GMC Sierra pickup truck on Highway 10 in Becker County. A trooper pulled it over because the truck was supposed to be red, according to its registration. Also the driver and front-seat passenger were not wearing seatbelts.

The trooper smelled marijuana inside the truck, and a search revealed two baggies of meth, with a total weight of 12 grams, inside the center console.

On Jan. 29, Becker County District Judge Jay Carlson sentenced Hariluk to a year and a day in prison at St. Cloud, stayed five years. He was ordered to serve 63 days in jail, with credit for 63 days served.
