YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Police in northeast Ohio say a couple was jailed after responding to a fight challenge on Facebook.

Youngstown police say 25-five-year-old David Cotton and his wife, 22-year-old Lakeisha Cotton, were arrested early Tuesday after breaking into an apartment to fight a woman who had challenged Lakeisha Cotton in a Facebook message.

The (Youngstown) Vindicator reports officers showed up at the apartment to find the women attacking each other.

The Cottons were charged with aggravated burglary. A report said they broke a window to get in. Jail records didn’t indicate if they had attorneys.

City Prosecutor Dana Lantz said her office has been seeing more cases stemming from online disputes.
