4. There is probable cause to believe that the defendant poses a danger to another person or to the community. For TWEETING? Like I could pose a DANGER to anyone?

So, there's the story. I am waiting to be arrested because a Circuit Court judge gave WJJ Hoge III a peace order, the Carroll County State's Attorney office will do nothing to stop Hoge in the malicious misuse of their courts and their office, because I exercised generally agreed-upon First Amendment Right to use the letters "@wjjhoge" in a Tweet.

I won't be the first journalist jailed for standing up for the First  Amendment; I won't be the last. But I'm hard pressed to think of a sillier, more craven reason for putting a man who can barely walk in jail.

History will forget who I am. But they will remember that William John Joseph Hoge III is the man who put a disabled guy in jail for using his name in a Tweet.

What a thing to be famous for.
