Facebook ‘Poke' Violated Protective Order: Police

A Milford man is facing charges after “poking” someone on Facebook who had a protective order against him, according to police. 

Police took Eric Bauer, 27, of Milford, into custody on a warrant on Monday after he was accused of violating a protective order by sending a “poke” through Facebook to the woman who got a protective order against him on May 5, according to police. 

Bauer was charged with violation of a protective order and released on a promise to appear.

While it is not clear why the protective order was put into place, Bauer is accused of risk of injury to a child and disorderly conduct from an arrest in March 2016. 

His listed attorney, K. Coleman, could not be reached for comment.
