Police have tracked down the woman whose privacy was violated when Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers snapchatted a picture of her showering naked (because that's how you shower) at an L.A. Fitness gym in July.

The woman, who is reportedly in her seventies, claims she wants to work with authorities, who are recommending prosecution. The charge, according to TMZ, would be “Dissemination of Private Images," a misdemeanor that could result in up to six months jail time.

Mathers probably wishes she could unsend this.

A bit of backstory: Mathers posted a selfie from the gym looking aghast, featuring a normal non-Playboy Playmate human woman showering in the background, captioned, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either." Get it? Haha, not everyone is a model, GOOD ONE!

When her joke didn't go over as planned and people got angry people got her at for body-shaming a stranger (because some people are not cold-hearted narcissists), she deleted the post and claimed she meant to send it in a private message. Uh-huh. Anyway, the police were notified, the gym banned her for life, she lost some work, and that brings us to now.

TMZ's sources claim that cops are trying to "make an example out of Mathers," because mocking and invading the privacy of people who are just trying to live their lives in peace isn't just an asshole move, it's also a criminal offense.
