I'm sorry to hear this happened.

While there may not be grounds for criminal action here, you can report it to Instagram and they will take it down immediately.

However slashing your tires is criminal. It's vandalism and destruction of your personal property -- a misdemeanor offense, punishable by jail time and a fine.

The situation on Instagram can perhaps be construed as a pattern of harassment. Taking these 2 instances together, as well as anything else he may have done, you may have enough grounds to file for a domestic protective injunction.

You can also speak with a prosecutor about possibility of filing criminal harassment charges since there has been multiple incidents, or at least criminal vandalism due to your tires having been destroyed.

It won't cost you anything to meet with a prosecutor, and criminal charges are filed by the state so pursuing criminal prosecution would not cost you any attorney fees.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
