MySpace proclamation lands Pasco man in jail

NEW PORT RICHEY — Barred by a domestic violence injunction from calling or visiting his ex-girlfriend, Brian Hinrichs found another way to profess his love, authorities say.

He sent her a message on MySpace saying, "I still love you," according to an arrest report from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

The injunction, which Hinrichs received on Oct. 24 and Dec. 8, forbids any contact with the woman.

At first, Hinrichs, 26, told deputies his mother sent the message, the report said. Then he blamed his current girlfriend and "a guy named Jacob," before acknowledging he sent the message, deputies said.

Hinrichs (pictured, lower right), of 9241 Kiowa Drive, was arrested Saturday on a charge of violating a domestic violence injunction — his third such arrest in the past two months.

He was released Sunday from the Land O'Lakes jail on $2,000 bail.
