Submission + - Tennessee woman arrested for Facebook "poking" (go.com)

An anonymous reader writes: This story caught my attention and thought I would share it. From TFA; "According to an affidavit filed with the Sumner County General Sessions Court on Sept. 25, Shannon D. Jackson of Hendersonville, Tenn., allegedly violated a legal order of protection that had been previously filed against her when she sent a virtual "poke" to another woman on Facebook." Ms. Jackson's defense attorney Mr. Lassiter said "The only evidence that I'm aware of is a printout of a screen[.]" and later added "I'm trying to get my hands on some Facebook documentation so we can better assess the situation."

So is this the first time you have heard of someone being arrested for poking someone on Facebook? What do you think of this?
