(WKMG) TAVARES, Fla. - A Tavares police officer is under investigation after a Facebook comment was posted on her page referencing past presidential assassins, right around the time President Barack Obama gave his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, according to authorities.

Local 6 has confirmed that Officer Sarah Coursey is under investigation after the Tavares Police Department received an email Thursday night about the comment, which stated, "Where's Lee Harvey Oswald or John Wilkes Booth when you need them!?!? :)"

The post was made around 10:15 p.m., approximately the same time Obama was speaking in Charlotte, N.C.
