Cop in cyberstalking case allowed to go to treatment

EVERETT — A Seattle cop being investigated for cyberstalking, identity theft and fourth-degree domestic-violence assault was released from jail Friday so he can go to a treatment center in Florida.

Seattle detective David Blackmer, 43, lives in the Everett area. Seattle investigators allege that he created a fake Facebook page for his ex-mistress, 31, and posted sexual pictures of her without her consent. He also reportedly assaulted her during an argument the two had near his home.

Blackmer was held overnight at the Snohomish County Jail. He appeared briefly Friday in Everett District Court. He was ordered not to contact the victim or use any electronic devices with Internet access pending the court case.

Blackmer also was placed on leave from his job.
