Man accused of harassing deputy who had BMW towed

Posted:

HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) -- A West St. Paul man is accused of creating a Facebook page to harass a Dakota County sheriff's deputy who had his BMW towed.

Forty-four-year-old Shawn Amick is charged with felony harassment and stalking. A criminal complaint says Amick set up a Facebook page in the deputy's name, included personal information and posted "derogatory homosexual and racist comments."

The complaint says the deputy had previously arrested Amick and twice had his car towed. The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/13gyOOZ ) reports investigators traced the Facebook account to Amick's home. Amick says he did not create the Facebook page. His first court appearance is Feb. 25.
