Meet Harry Bruder, 54. Bruder took the above mugshot after he was jailed last week for apparently “friending” his ex-wife on Facebook!Bruder, a resident of Pasco County, Florida man was arrested for twice “friending” his estranged wife on Facebook in violation of a domestic protection order.
According to TheSmokingGun, Bruder admitted contacting his wife twice last last month via the social networking site. Investigators charge that Bruder’s Facebook requests violated a domestic violence injunction obtained by his wife Carole, from whom he has been separated for two years.
“Yeah, I did it,” Bruder said when confronted by cops. He remarked that the friend requests were “stupid” and knew that he should not have sent them. Bruder, who also copped to changing the password to his wife’s Yahoo e-mail account, said that he was upset that he had to attend court-ordered counseling sessions as a result of the injunction (which bars him from any contact with his wife).
Bruder, pictured in the above mug shot, was jailed in lieu of $5,000 bail. The sheriff’s report lists his employer at Bud’s Plumbing. Bruder’s Facebook page can be found here (but he’s since increased his privacy settings *smart move*).
In an apparent reference to the filing of the restraining order, Bruder wrote in a July 27 post to his Facebook wall that, “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.”
Ummm… No. Mr. Broder. The real winner is the attorney who’s making dollars from your obvious stupidity! Why even go there… Facebook friends? Really??
