EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

14 News has learned that a protective order has been filed against Evansville City Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley.

The order was requested by Alex Jarvis, a local businessman and former campaign manager for Riley.

14News has also learned that Jarvis filed a report with Evansville Police following posts by Riley on her Facebook page and text messages to his partner.

In the Facebook post from Thursday night, Riley states, "Alex Jarvis needs a bullet. And that would be humane."

The post also says, "Alex or Justin Jarvis is a lying piece of s**t that you should be wary of getting involved with. Don't pay him a dime for political advice. He's a joke".

The text messages to Jarvis' partner on Thursday state, "No. I like you. Your mate should be killed".  The messages go on to say, "I feel zero remorse to his death. Zero. You should pay attention to what that piece of s**t does."

In response to these revelations, Riley posted this statement on her Facebook page:

Third Ward City Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley responded to the day's news with an admission that she suffers from alcoholism and relapsed earlier this year. Brinkerhoff-Riley stated, "I have been in recovery for some time but relapsed this spring. I had a lot of extra stress related to medical issues with one of my children, and I drank. It was not a valid excuse, but I used it and have reached for alcohol periodically since to the detriment of myself, my family, my practice and my constituents. I am deeply sorry for my offensive behavior and for embarrassing my family, clients and constituents with what is nothing more (or less) than drunk messaging/posting. I have apologized to those affected where I am able. It's not enough, but it is a start. I love this community and being an advocate, but I owe my family a healthy wife and mother first. My clients and constituents are also though entitled to the representative they thought they had when they elected or hired me. Going forward, I will evaluate my future and make some decisions based on my ability to get back to being the person you all deserve- the person I deserve."
