Employee Arrested For Cyber Stalking

A complaint about an employee being drunk at work ends with the same employee being arrested for cyber stalking.

On Friday deputies responded to PCB Piezotronics in Halifax, after 55-year-old Michael Starke apparently showed up drunk for work and caused a disturbance.

Starke left before deputies arrived and later allegedly sent threatening text messages to employees at the business.

Deputies later arrested Starke at his home and charged him with cyber stalking and communicating threats.

Starke was put in jail under a $3,000 dollar bond.
