LONG BEACH —

LONG BEACH, Miss. (AP) — A 30-year-old Missouri man accused of cyberstalking his ex-wife has turned himself in after learning of a warrant for his arrest in Long Beach.

The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/17Wo8X8 ) police had obtained a warrant for Charles David Hunt in 2010.

Detective Stephanie Stewart says Hunt is accused of sending the woman threatening emails and text messages for several months, even after he had moved from Long Beach, and began sending threatening messages to her family as well.

Stewart says Hunt learned of the arrest warrant and went to the Harrison County jail with his attorney on Wednesday. He was arrested on a felony charge of cyberstalking and two misdemeanor counts of making threatening phone calls.

Hunt was released on bail Wednesday night.
