    ATHENS, Ala. (WAAY) -- An Athens man has been charged with inciting to riot after allegedly seeking to to kill police officers via his MySpace page.

    Robert Bradley Tanksley, 19, of 1404 S. Houston Street was arrested Thursday afternoon after Athens police received information from a former Athens resident that someone had posted a MySpace page with the display name "Kill an Athens Cop today...(they're) Bastards."

    After investigating, police determined the page was posted by Tanksley. While being questioned by investigators Thursday, Tanksley admitted to posting the MySpace page.

    According to police, Tanksley said he was mad at the police department because his vehicle was impounded when he was cited for driving while his license was suspended on August 18. He was also cited for improper tag and reckless driving.

    Tanksley told police the officer was respectful to him and offered him a ride home but he did not want to ride in a police car. Tanksley walked home and changed his MySpace page at that time.

    MySpace.com disabled the Web site Thursday. Tanksley was transferred to the Limestone County Jail and released on a $1,000 bond.

    Tanksley is employed at Steelcase and is a member of the Alabama National Guard.
