KRLD Radio in Dallas interviewed Travis Crabtree on the dismissal of all claims against a Tarrant County police officer who placed an advertisement on Craigslist inviting people to take a basketball goal and other sporting equipment at no cost because he no longer wanted them. The problem was the items did not belong to the police officer. They belonged to a neighbor.

The police officer was originally indicted for forgery, but the Tarrant County District Attorney's officer dismissed all claims because, according to the D.A., there was no violation of existing law. The neighbor believes the police officer was given preferential treatment. In the interview, Travis Crabtree discusses the recent enactment of the Texas online harassment law and what role the law plays in regulating online behavior.
