SPOKANE, Wash. – A 20-year-old man from New York state was jailed in Spokane during the weekend after being accused of stalking a 15-year-old girl he says he met while playing the video game Halo.
Police arrested the Saratoga Springs, N.Y., man after he apparently drove to Spokane, went past the girl's house, and threatened her in a text message.
The girl's parents were outside when the man passed and honked. They got his license plate number and called police.
Police say they traced the man to a Spokane motel. After questioning, police charged Joshua R. Stetar, of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., with one felony count of stalking. He was booked into jail at 1:47 a.m. Saturday. Eight hours later, he posted $10,000 bond and was released.
