An Ohio man was arrested for creating a fake Facebook page for the Parma Police Department.

Anthony C. Novak, 27, was charged with disrupting public services, a felony.

The Facebook page was created on March 2, 2016 and caught the eye of the police department. The agency worked with officials at Facebook to determine who created the page.

The fake page was similar to the real one but the URL added the word “The” before “City of Parma Police Department.” Plus the real page is listed as a police station and government organization.

Police say the fake page included several inappropriate posts that were derogatory and inflammatory that claimed to be from the Parma Police Department.
