Criminals beware: You can be busted if you or one of your buddies posts a Facebook photo of you doing something illegal that violates your restraining order. Like holding a gun all macho-like.

A 20-year-old Wisconsin man was arrested after his ex-girlfriend reported a photo posted on Facebook that showed him holding a shotgun. His domestic abuse restraining order doesn't allow him to possess a firearm.

The photo was uploaded to Facebook Wednesday, but there was no information on posted it.

The photo led police to his home where they found a loaded shotgun. Whoops. The man claims he didn't know about the shotgun rule. No charges have been filed in the case.
