Joke Facebook post brings probation

A photograph posted to Facebook as a joke — showing and identifying an undercover Toledo police officer — has resulted in two years’ probation for the man who snapped it.

After being found guilty Monday of misdemeanor obstructing official business, Jason Phillips, 38, of 1842 Fernwood Ave. was sentenced by Lucas County Common Pleas Judge Stacy Cook to the probation, including 30 days on electronic monitoring, plus 60 hours of community service.

Phillips told The Blade he posted the photo as a joke.
