MAIN TOWNSHIP — A man’s 15 minutes of fame is over.

Newswatch 16 interviewed Darrin Bellum in November for a bear hunting story in Luzerne County.

He also sent a picture of himself and the bear he shot to a local newspaper.

Investigators tell us a woman, who has a protection from abuse order against Bellum, saw him on TV and called police.

Bellum has been charged with violating the PFA because he is not supposed to have a gun.
