Internet name sparks neighbor's spat

NORTH AUGUSTA — Police were called to intervene when two men got into a spat over the name of a wireless Internet network.


A man reported Friday that he began receiving harassing text messages from a neighbor who was angry about a WiFi network named, “Jamie Has the Herp.”

A North Augusta Public Safety officer contacted the neighbor, whose wife’s name is Jamie, and the man admitted he sent the texts.

The officer told the neighbor that even if the man was behind “Jamie Has the Herp,” he was not committing a crime.

Both men were placed on trespass notice.

The network name has been changed, according to the report.
