PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi authorities are looking for a man they say used social media to threaten a state Marine Patrol officer on Facebook.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1VlmNEs) Joey Jason Holliman is wanted on a cyberstalking charge.

Marine Patrol Chief Keith Davis of the state Department of Marine Resources says officer Michael Strickland had stopped Holliman for traffic violations Wednesday on a Jackson County road.

Strickland wrote Holliman misdemeanor citations for careless driving and no proof of insurance.

Soon afterward, Davis said Holliman found Strickland on Facebook and posted a violent threat on his timeline.

Authorities did not disclose the nature of the threat.

A Justice Court judge issued a warrant for Holliman’s arrest Thursday.

Davis said law enforcement officers across the coastal counties were on the lookout for Holliman.
