FDL police department Twitter account hacked

FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Fond du Lac Police want to shut down its Twitter account after it got hacked -- but that might be easier said than done. 

The police Twitter account had not been used since last October, when officials sent out a tweet about an upcoming bike auction.

Last month, it started putting out unauthorized tweets -- and folks complained over the weekend after reading profane messages.

Assistant police chief Steve Thiry says he and others are working to shut down the Twitter account -- but they're finding it's not so easy. Thiry tells the Fond du Lac Reporter that Twitter won't close the account unless it gets a request from the original e-mail address that set it up.

Thiry says that's impossible, because those people no longer work for the Police Department -- and their e-mail accounts probably don't exist anymore.
