Florida Man Arrested Over Facebook Friend Request

August 18th, 2010

If you’re ex-wife has a restraining order against you, don’t try to friend her. This husband didn’t get the message. From Slatest:

If you’re wondering why Harry Bruder hasn’t updated his Facebook status in a while, it’s because he’s in jail. The 54-year-old Florida man was arrested for sending a friend request—to his soon-to-be ex-wife, who had a restraining order out against her husband. Bruder admitted that he tried to friend his wife twice last month, although they’ve been separated for two years. Even digital contact can be a violation of a protective order, so Bruder was arrested and is being held on $5,000 bail.
