A Riviera Beach man’s Facebook post landed him in jail when he wrote about wanting the mother of his child to be “as good as dead,” according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
Officers arrested Trayvis Richardson, 21, on charges of domestic battery, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and aggravated assault with a firearm on Aug. 8.
The mother of Richardson’s 5-year-old child told deputies that he came to her house yelling at the door. When the child let Richardson inside the house an argument ensued between him and the victim.
After the victim tried to get Richardson to leave, he allegedly grabbed her shirt, hit her on the head with an object, and then pointed a gun to her face saying, “I should just kill you right now (expletive) but you’re lucky your child is here.”
Richardson left before officers arrived, and the victim could not give provide his contact information. It was not until Richardson took to social media that police had evidence to arrest him.
His Facebook post read, “I just pissed my baby mama, ho you’re as good as dead,” according to the police report.
Richardson had his first court appearance on Monday and was sentenced to a $38,000 bond.
