It's not impossible, but it would be tough to interest the police and the DA's office in wanting to do anything about it. The problem is that legislation has not kept up with the technology we have today. It is a crime to use telephones and computers
to harass someone. But with out of state/out of country differences, the whole matter of where jurisdiction lies can get complicated. Competing jurisdictions all too often just seem to point their fingers at each other and say, "It's your problem."
The British subject would be outside of the jurisdiction of the local authorities. The complinant could theoretically swear out a complaint
and a prosecutor could issue an arrest warrant, but unless the Brit came over and was stopped at the border on the warrant, it would likely be pretty non-eventful. Realistically, that's unlikely a very unlikely scenario though.
The FBI does deal internationally and it is also a Federal matter to use telecommunications to harass others. But I don't know that they'd care much to get involved either, dependig on the nature of the harassment.
