A man on Hixson Pike told police another man had hacked into his phone and was harassing him. He said the man was his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend, and she had set up a mirror on his phone, and the man was using this to disrupt his use of his phone and his Facebook account. The man tried to show police the problems he was having with his phone, which mostly consisted of him turning off the cell service, and then getting frustrated that phone calls and things that required service were not functional. The man was unable to provide any more details on the other man, other than he stays on Signal Mountain. He said that he knew it was that man doing this since his ex-girlfriend told him so. Police suggested he try to contact his cell phone provider to see about their assistance in securing his phone, and then contact Facebook to see about doing the same with his Facebook account. He said he thought the best idea would be to forget about it all and just get a new phone. With no proof of any actual harassment, no suspect evidence, if there was one, and no statements that he wished to do anything about it from the man, no further police action was taken.
