Warrant issued over online comments
URBANA — A Missouri man wanted in Champaign County for allegedly electronically harassing four different people in Illinois has been arrested.
Champaign County sheriff's investigator Jody Ferry said that on Monday he sent the warrant issued Friday for the arrest of Robin B. King, 55, to a police colleague in St. Louis.
"He was arrested at work Monday afternoon," Ferry said. "He is in the custody of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and ready to be picked up."
King, of Bella Villa, Mo., formerly lived in Champaign.
He was criminally charged Friday with harassment by electronic communication for sending allegedly obscene, racist, and anti-Semitic messages to three women and a man on multiple occasions in the early part of 2013.
One of the alleged victims, Lori Stewart of Urbana, told The News-Gazette she had been harassed on her web log for as long as seven years.
Ferry said he was uncertain when King would be returned to Urbana for arraignment on the charges.
