Woman Arrested for Facebook "Poke"

And you probably assumed a poke would never lead to the pokey.

Apparently, a Tennessee woman assumed the same, when she gave an online "poke" to another woman . . . in violation of a protective order.  The online antics led to the arrest of the alleged "poker," Shannon D. Jackson, 36. 

The court order prohibited Jackson from "telephoning, contacting or otherwise communicating with the petitioner," The Tennessean reported.  Facebook's poke feature simply informs a user he or she's been "poked" by another user. 

Jackson's scheduled to appear in court later this month.
