MCHENRY, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say they’ve arrested a Mississippi man accused of using Facebook to threaten a state marine patrol officer who had ticketed him for careless driving and driving without proof of insurance.

The sheriff’s office says Joey Jason Holliman of Jackson County was released on $2,500 bond after his arrest on a charge of cyberstalking.

Department of Marine Resources spokeswoman Melissa Scallan says Holliman allegedly posted the threatening message on Officer Michael Strickland’s timeline shortly after being ticketed Wednesday.

The department’s marine patrol chief, Keith Davis, says Holliman was arrested Thursday night at his home in McHenry.

Holliman could not be reached for comment Sunday because he does not have a listed phone number.
