My question involves restraining orders in the State of: TN
I hope I'm in the right forum.
I have an ex-girlfriend who has threatened to file a harassment report on me with her local police department. The irony is, I'M the one who is desperately trying to get away from her. I haven't seen her in months, and I'd like to keep it that way. She's angry concerning the split and she knows that since I'm a police officer on my probationary period, it wouldn't take much to fire me. I have no problem staying away from her or not contacting her. If anyone is being harassed, it's me. She has threatened to contact my parents and tell them what a "loser" I am. She has already contacted friends of mine through facebook and talked bad about me. It got to a point where I had to call her mother and ask her to talk to her daughter about not contacting my friends or family.
I guess my question is, can she file an order of protection against me even though she has no evidence that I have harassed, threatened, stalked, etc. her? I mean, can anyone just file an order of protection against anyone without proof? I'm concerned about it, as it could effect my job.
