Ind. Law - "Retaliation for Facebook posting prompts arrest of 16-year-old girl"

Stan Maddux, NWI Times correspondent, had this report Jan. 21st that begins:

LAPORTE | Angry over offensive remarks about her on Facebook, a 16-year-old girl made a one-hour trip to LaPorte from Monticello to beat up a teenage girl responsible for the postings, LaPorte police said. * * *

Police were called back to the house 90 minutes later when the suspect allegedly told the victim during a profanity-laced telephone call that she was coming back to beat her some more.

However, with squad cars outside, the suspect did not stop but was seen in a pickup truck that drove by the house, telling the victim on a speakerphone, "I see you got the cops there," according to police.

Other officers, after given a description of the fleeing pickup truck, stopped the girl, who was a passenger in the vehicle driven by her boyfriend.
