The Wake County Sheriff's Office says Catherine Sartain opened a Twitter account under the name Bob Smith, @Bobbaseball1234, on Aug. 11, 2013 to harass an ex-boyfriend and his family after the couple broke up.

According to a search warrant of Twitter account, Sartain, under the Twitter handle @Bobbaseball1234,  posted things about her ex-boyfriend's daughter, such as the clothes she was wearing and that he was in love with her.

The search warrant claims Sartain placed gay tweets that were not true. She also posted tweets about the ex-boyfriend's daughter placing ads for sex on Craigslist. As a result, several people showed up to the victim's address looking for sex with the 17-year-old girl.
