FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A man is facing charges after he ignored a protective order filed against him by his ex-girlfriend.  Randall Reynolds II had been dating the woman for six months.  Police say the two never lived together, they do not have children, and have never been married.

Reynolds had been served a protective order in February of this year.  According to court documents, Reynolds told police he was aware of the protective order and that papers were served to him.  Between February and April of this year, Reynolds continued to text the woman, call her, and leave items on her porch.  The woman filed seven different police reports in reference to it.

Reynolds admitted to police that he called and texted her because she had contacted him.  He also said he had been to the woman’s home on at least two occasions.  On one he had left a note and some flowers on her front porch.  Police took the note.  On the second occasion, Reynolds said he just walked by her house.

When detectives asked why he called, texted, and stopped by he said, “I guess I’m an idiot.”

Reynolds was charged with invasion of privacy and hauled off to the Allen County jail.
