(Newser) – Talk about the break-up from hell: After leather artist Peter Main, 62, parted ways with Toni Jo Silvey, 49, in 2009, she allegedly broke two of his windows with a tire iron and a third with a sword, rammed his parked car with hers and sent it through the garage door, egged his house on multiple occasions, and called him 1,001 times in less than three months. Main also told police Silvey sent him 712 emails during the same period, starting in mid-June. On one particular day, she allegedly racked up a whopping 146 calls to her ex, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The whole time, Silvey was blogging about her romantic woes under the Internet persona "woundedpoeticsoul" and bragging about some of the acts on her Facebook page. (In an interview with police, Silvey repeated, “Read my blog, read my blog, it’s all there.”) Her blog also, not surprisingly, included rants about her ex, the end of their relationship, and his new girlfriend; it may have even included excerpts from Main’s hacked email. Main had been reluctant to file charges because he didn’t want to anger Silvey further, but she was arrested Tuesday and charged with felony stalking. The Houston Press points to what it claims is Silvey's blog, and it's about as disturbing as you'd expect.
