GLENDALE, AZ — A Laveen man says he checked with Siri to make sure he wasn't breaking any laws before placing a GPS tracker on his ex-wife's car.

Glendale police report that on October 29, Bobby Lee Hatfield, 49, was arrested in Laveen. Hatfield is accused of stalking and harassing his ex-wife and family members for several months.

In this latest incident, Hatfield allegedly placed a GPS tracking device on her vehicle. The victim found the device and alerted police, who traced the tracker to Hatfield.

When police contacted Hatfield, he allegedly admitted to placing the tracker on her vehicle, saying it was a joke. He also reportedly told police that "he checked with Siri on his cell phone and was advised it was not a crime to use a GPS tracker."

He has been charged with stalking and harassment. His next court appearance is Thursday.
