Southampton Blotter: Flanders woman alerts police over Facebook post

04/16/2017 6:01 AM |

A Flanders woman told police last Wednesday she felt unsafe after posts were made about her online, according to Southampton Town police.

The woman had been alerted to a Facebook post that said she “would be sorry, boy oh boy,” police said. She told police she wanted to document an ongoing dispute with the person who wrote the post and said she felt afraid it would happen again, officials said.

The posts, the woman reported, followed her seeking child support from her children’s father, according to authorities. Police said she wanted an order of protection and was referred to the courts.

No direct threats of physical harm or death were reported, police said.

• Jessica Cunningham, 30, of Riverhead was arrested Sunday and charged with driving while intoxicated after cops stopped her for speeding on Osborn Avenue in Riverhead, New York State Police reported.

• Chelsea Conti, 27, of Riverhead was arrested and charged with DWI following a traffic stop on Montauk Highway in Southampton Town, state police said. Ms. Conti was transported to the Riverhead barracks and a breath sample indicated a .19 percent blood alcohol content, police said, more than double the legal limit.

Those who are named in police reports have not been convicted of any crime or violation. The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
