Harry Bruder, Plumber: Facebook Bandit!

As seen in the mugshot linked below, a plumber named Harry Bruder has been arrested in Florida, for the crime of sending a friend request to his ex-wife on Facebook!

Harry Bruder's relationship with his wife took some bad turns, leading to divorce lawyers setting up a divorce, AND then the wife getting a restraining order. So since restraining orders nowadays also have to include social media, he was violating the order by violating her space on Facebook. He also even admitted to changing her Yahoo! email password.

After hearing of the counseling sessions he now has to attend, and the other punishment he faces, Bruder posted on his own Facebook "today my future x wife thinks she won but the real winner is me for i know the truth she is nothing but a lying emotionally disturbed woman who needs help to handle previous abusive relationship."

When Carole Bruder filed a restraining order against her estranged husband Harry, she had every reason to believe that her soon-to-be ex-hubby would never dare contact her again. Apparently, though, Harry didn't think that Facebook friend requests fell under the legal definition of "contact." According to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report obtained by the Smoking Gun, the 54-year-old plumber from Florida has admitted to contacting his wife twice on Facebook within the past month -- a clear violation, investigators argue, of a court-ordered domestic violence injunction that bars him from making contact.
