    A Facebook fan page dedicated to the San Francisco police officer nicknamed the "Hot Cop of Castro" has been taken down following his arrest for hit-and-run.

    Christopher Kohrs was arrested for felony hit-and-run on Sunday, while off duty on medical leave. He faces two felony counts.

    The alleged crime was enough for a man who posted a Facebook fan page for Kohrs in the summer of 2014 to take it off the social media network on Monday. The page had more than 52,400 likes, SFGate reported.

    The page was the viral result of amateur photographer Mark Abramson posting pictures of Kohrs, who then worked for the park district, patrolling a construction site in the Castro.

    "I'm not dumping Chris in the slightest,” the page's former administrator Nathan Tatterson wrote on his own page, according to the paper. "I hope he gets all the help he needs. However since yesterday the Facebook fan page has become a forum of hatred toward Chris and I don't feel it's appropriate to give those people an outlet."
