Florida Man Arrested for Making Facebook "Friend" Request to Wife Who Had Restraining Order Against Him - Harry William Bruder, Sr

This is what happens when you give grown-ups access to the Internet!

All this guy had to do to stay out of jail is keep away from his estranged wife. The temporary restraining order prohibited Harry William Bruder, Sr from not only being in face-to-face contact with Carole Bruder but from
contacting her by e-mail, Internet messaging or any third party.

Apparently, he didn't get the message that Facebook is on the Internet. His ability to get online will likely be restricted while in jail.
A Hudson man's "friend request" on a social networking website was anything but ignored recently. It landed him in handcuffs on Sunday.  Pasco sheriff's deputies say 54-year-old Harry William Bruder Sr. violated the conditions of a domestic violence injunction against him July 20 when he friend-requested his estranged wife on Facebook.

On June 25, Bruder was served with the restraining order his wife, Carole Jean Bruder, 61, obtained from Pasco Judge Candy VanDercar. The injunction prohibits Bruder from not only being in face-to-face contact with Carole Bruder but from contacting her by e-mail, Internet messaging or any third party.

Carole Bruder contacted deputies Sunday after she discovered her e-mail password had been changed and she suspected her husband. She also told deputies that he twice friend-requested her on Facebook, the second time being July 22.
