A: Anyone can file a complaint. Whether or not it is something the police would do anything about is another thing. Keep a copy of her postings (hard copy), showing time and date; likewise any instagram or other transmission. Keep your response to a simple "I disagree." and say no more. Ideally, just ignore her.
