Editor's Note: Err Bowen completed 24 hours community service, and his charges were dismissed in August 2010.

A Wake County probation officer has been charged with stalking someone online, authorities said Wednesday.

Johnston County deputies arrested Err Bowen, 29, of 65 Stephenson Road in Benson, on Friday and charged him with one count of cyberstalking. He was released on a $500 unsecured bond.

According to court records, the alleged incident occurred on March 1. No other details were available.

Pamela Walker, spokeswoman for the state Department of Correction, said that, as of Wednesday, Bowen was no longer employed by the department. He had been with the department for four years and had been a probation officer since 2008, she said.
