A Georgia woman complaining about her ex-husband on Facebook got a rude awakening when he arrested her over the social media gripes. After an argument between the pair, Anne King said on Facebook her ex-husband would not pick up the medicine her sick son needed.
The post read, "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." One of King's friends chimed in on the post calling her ex-husband a "POS."
This didn't make her ex-husband too happy who turns out is Capt. Corey King, a Washington County sheriff’s deputy. The 2015 dispute turned into a "criminal matter" when he and Capt. Trey Burgamy filed an incident report against King and her friend. The report turned into a criminal charge of defamation of character.
The case against King was dismissed in State Court since Georgia Supreme Court found the law unconstitutional 32 years prior. King has now filed her own suit against the deputies saying the pair used their high-ranking law enforcement status to abuse her civil rights.
"Corey and Trey thought I was too dumb and too broke to do anything about it," King said of her own lawsuit. Her lawsuit against her ex-husband will go before a federal judge who will decide whether the case will go to trial.
