TANGIPAHOA PARISH, LA (WVUE) - A man who is accused of posting on social media about his divorce to the point his ex had to go into hiding has been arrested, according to  Parish Sheriff's Office.

On January 4, Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office began investigating a series of ongoing stalking complaints that occurred over a four month period.

Police said Alava Vance III of Ponchatoula posted repeatedly on social media about his ongoing divorce in descriptive language.

The victim explained that the posts had resulted in her being terrified and required her to go into hiding.

Monday, Vance was charged with seven counts of cyber stalking and was taken into custody at the Twenty First District Court.

He was in court on a previous arrest for violating a court order.
