Rivera Beach Police arrested Latasha N. Hutchins on Tuesday for hitting her cousin with her car in an argument over Facebook, reports the Palm Beach Post.

According to the probable cause affidavit obtained by the Post, Hutchins told police her cousin got mad at her for things she posted about his mother on Facebook. She said her cousin threw a brick at her, but ultimately denied hitting him with her car.

Activity on Facebook can often trigger violence in the real world.

Last December, a Texas woman stabbed her then-boyfriend in the lip after arguing over a Facebook posting. When the woman waved a knife in his face, the boyfriend said, "Just do it." She then cut him on the lip.

Within a day of the last Facebook message, one woman was found fatally stabbed in the chest with a kitchen knife in the other woman's apartment.
