Hacked

The Oakland University Police Department dispatch received a call on March 16, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. of an individual who said his ex-girlfriend was in the process of moving out and had broken his headphones. Officers arrived at the apartment and made contact with the complainant. He had been in class when she logged into his social media accounts and made a number of posts, then changed his passwords. They had recently broken up and she was in the process of moving out when they began arguing while he tried to forcefully remove her belongings. She broke his headphones, at which point he pushed her. Her phone was taken to be factory-reset and he was arrested on the scene for domestic violence, as he had instigated the situation.
