Summer romances end for all kinds of reasons, but Danielle* and George*’s summer romance was not the kind that Nicholas Sparks writes about.
Danielle and George are 21 and from Miami. They started dating in July 2013, but their relationship was short-lived, and ended before the autumn equinox.
Around 5 p.m. Wednesday September 25th Danielle broke things off with George. Almost 9 hours later, at approximately 2 a.m., Danielle started receiving text messages from George’s phone number.
According to the police report, George “stated he had explicit photos of [Danielle] and would send them to her friends.”
In another text George wrote “eventually all your brothers in Christ are going to know the real you I’m going to have a feast with you.”
In the police report, Officer Tighe wrote that he “read all the saved texts [George] sent to [Danielle]. None of the texts threatened specific bodily harm to [Danielle].” Between 2 a.m. and 5:14 a.m. Thursday September 26th George sent Danielle 20 to 30 text messages. After 5:14 a.m. George did not send any more messages.
Based on the police report, UMPD “advised [Danielle] of the University of Miami’s security escort service for students on campus and how to initiate a security escort.” The report did not suggest that George was contacted.
