JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A north Florida woman who is going through a messy divorce has been arrested after police say she spray painted broken hearts and other graffiti outside a new Jacksonville courthouse.
An officer allegedly spotted 35-year-old Audrey Dostie spray painting the walkway that leads to the courthouse.
Jacksonville Sheriff's officers say she spray painted broken hearts on the columns of the new $350 million courthouse along with an angry statement to a judge on the sidewalk.
Dostie was arrested Thursday and charged with criminal mischief.
WJXT in Jacksonville reports Dostie is in the middle of a divorce and custody case. Her husband also allegedly filed a restraining order against her.
Police say she spray painted similar graffiti and messages to her husband and son outside her husband's business.
