Court documents obtained by the San Angelo Standard-Times on Tuesday state that Reiter’s ex-boyfriend, Lanny Marvin Bush, 53, of Brownwood, created a fake Facebook page to set up a date with Reiter.  Bush was arrested Thursday and remained in custody Wednesday at the Tom Green County Jail on a charge of online impersonation, a third-degree felony. Court documents allege Bush created a page under the name of Rocky Switzer “with intent to harm” Reiter.
