Christopher Foley

WAUKESHA COUNTY (WITI) — A case involving a restraining order filed against a former New Berlin West High School boys basketball coach has been dismissed.

The restraining order was filed against Christopher Foley by a female co-worker who claimed Foley sent her multiple questionable text messages, and that he stalked her.

Foley was fired after the was arrested for possession of marijuana. He was arrested on February 6th after a game. After a short administrative leave, district leaders terminated Foley’s employment. He also worked as a special education assistant at the school.

In the case involving the restraining order, a female teacher’s aide says Foley bombarded her with text messages and emails — wanting to start a romantic relationship with her.

According to court documents, it began in November when Foley allegedly followed her to a bar. A month later, the woman says Foley sent her text messages — one reading “you need to love me.” Another claimed Foley’s love could “fix her.”

The woman blocked Foley’s number and emails, but then in January, Foley allegedly showed up outside the woman’s house. The woman unblocked Foley after his marijuana arrest to see if he would be at work on February 9th.

Foley responded, saying: “Why were you out with creepy, nasty (man) last night downtown” and sent her emails to her school district email account.

“I will never unblock you,” the woman later wrote back. “If you ever contact me again on my work email, I will report you. Leave me alone.”

The court documents show she felt so harassed she decided to seek a restraining order.

The victim’s attorney released this statement to FOX6 News:

“Regrettably, Mr. Foley scared my client with his obsessive behavior, and failed to heed my client’s demand that he stop contacting her.”

Court records show neither Foley nor the female co-worker showed up in court, so the case was dismissed.

In the possession of marijuana case, Foley is set to be back in court on March 30th.

    I’ve pretty much always hated Fox News, but this pushes me way over the edge.

    A simple search of CCAP shows that it wasn’t dismissed because neither of them showed up. It was dismissed prior to the hearing because it was ridiculous, and the original petition was based on lies. Come on Fox News.

    A request to dismiss and vacate was agreed to by both attorneys. Her attorney, at her request, asked the coyrt not to proceed with a restraining order. It is simple to get a restraining order. For her to back put of it suggests there was more to this story. Gentlemen, if you know this lady, I’d stay far far away from her. You know the golden rule: Dont stick your * in crazy.

    I don’t even know where to being with this article. This is comical. Instead of restating the FALSE accusations that this psycho placed on Mr. Foley they should be stating quotes from Mr. Foley’s lawyer on why this case was dismissed. They clearly have an agenda to take him down at all costs and its sickening. And to Mr. Bob…. you must really be a 12 year old, because that statement is something a middle school aged child would say. This story should be stating that Foley is NOT a stalker and never made any of those claims that psycho girl originally accused him off.
