Here is my best explanation:

'throw out' is the definition.
(evicting is a kind of throwing out)

'starting trouble with wicked vice' is the subsidiary indication.
'starting' suggests taking the first letters.
'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'wicked' indicates an anagram.
The initial letter of 'trouble' is 't'.
'vice' with letters rearranged gives 'evic'.
't' put after 'evic' is 'evict'.

'for' is the link.
