LAKELAND (CBSMiami/AP) — Posting on social media is a great way to share with your family and friends what you’re up to – except when it isn’t.

Markesha Wilkerson, 18, found that out the hard way. On Monday, she appeared in a Facebook Live video from a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant, smiling and laughing with a person in a mouse costume.

Problem is – she was wanted by the cops. Tipped off by the video, Polk County sheriff’s deputies moved in and arrested Wilkerson for violation of probation on a gun charge and failure to appear.

She’s now being held in the Polk County Jail without bond.
