A Facebook friend request turned into a Facebook friend arrest for one Florida man. Harry Bruder allegedly violated his ex-wife’s protective order against him when he sent her friend requests, landing him in jail Monday night. His ex probably didn’t want to friend him anyway after seeing a recent wall post calling her, according to My Fox Orlando, “a lying emotionally disturbed woman who needs help to handle previous abusive relationship.” (Click here to read about how Facebook is causing some divorces.)
