Syrinx vs. Pan

Case Description: Complainant (Syrinx) accuses Defendant (Pan) of harassment. Pan got all hot and bothered about Syrinx, one of Artemis' virgin nymph followers. He chased her all around the woods until finally she had some naiads change her into reeds on the bank of the River Ladon to escape him.

Case Status: Case closed. To keep Syrinx with him always, Pan cut some of the reeds and tied them together making the first pan flute or syrinx. (If Syrinx hadn't been a plant, we're guessing she would've had some things to say about being cut up and turned into a musical instrument.)
