Cop Arrestes Ex Wife and Friend Over Facebook Post

From The Daily Sheeple


When a woman became frustrated with her ex-husband over his refusal to deliver medicine for their sick son, she vented her annoyance on the social media site, Facebook. But then, the ex-husband, who is a cop, immediately began the paperwork to have her arrested for “defamation of character.”

The whole dispute began in 2015 with the now infamous Facebook post. Anne King had taken her then 8-year-old son to the emergency room with the flu, returning home with enough medicine to get through the night. Anne King sent a text to Corey King, asking him to pick up ibuprofen for their son and leave it in the mailbox on his way to work. But Corey said he was too busy. So the next day Anne King turned to Facebook, writing she was “feeling overwhelmed. That moment when everyone in your house has the flu and you ask your kid’s dad to get them (not me) more Motrin and Tylenol and he refuses.”

Corey King demanded in a text message that his ex-wife take down the post, which she did eventually.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, within days of Anne King’s Facebook post, in which a friend of hers, Susan Hines, commiserated by calling her ex-husband Corey King a “POS,” the police captain and his colleague and friend, Captain Trey Burgamy, began paperwork to have both women arrested. Anne and her friend were later charged with criminal defamation of character. That law was deemed unconstitutional 32 years earlier by the Georgia Supreme Court.
