Randall Jeppesen, KSL NewsradioSome BYU students have learned the lesson that what you post online could get you in trouble.

Climbing the outer walls of the dorm buildings at BYU is a no-no, but Jake Justice's classmate did it anyway. Pictures were taken and posted online on the social network Facebook. A few days later, the cops showed up and handed his buddy a $50 fine.

So how did university police find out about the wall climbing picture? Justice says, "People turn other people in here, which I think is pretty low."

A BYU spokesperson says they do not search online for student infractions, but if violations are brought to their attention, they will deal with them.
