Following her arrest, Ms. Gao's family went to the police station to seek answers. They were told that Ms. Gao was arrested because she had escaped from the police station in 2007, and her name was listed on the police station's "wanted" list.
On the afternoon of August 9, 2010, Yue Feng called Ms. Gao's husband and told him to come to the police station.

In November 2003, Ms. Gao was arrested again while she clarified the facts about the persecution of Falun Gong to people on the street. She was sent to the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp in Zibo for another three years.
