Christopher Grant Proby is facing charges of aggravated stalking and obscene communication through the phone.

The woman told Riviera Beach police that she dated Proby for two weeks but broke things off because the man was too “institutionalized,” the report said. Records show that Proby has been to prison twice. He was most recently released in October after serving more than three years of a four-year sentence for possession of a firearm by a felon.

After the female victim was hired by the West Palm Beach police department to an unspecified position, she broke off contact with Proby because of his criminal record, the report said.

Proby began bombarding the woman with phone calls and promised to make her life a “living hell if she didn’t continue to talk to him.”

Told that she was contacting police, Proby responded, “Bring the police. Tell them I’m armed and dangerous.”

In one text, Proby wrote the woman: “I’ma make yo life miserable cause dats how u made mine and misery loves company.”

Proby, 29, also wrote that he had “nothing to live for” so threatening him with a restraining order would have no affect, the report said.

While an officer was speaking to the woman, she received 40 calls from Proby. The officer responded and told Proby not to call again.

Proby told the officer to “catch me if you can because I’m not going back to jail.” Proby told the officer he would call again, and did.
