Dani Mathers is now in the crosshairs of cops, because TMZ has learned there’s now a criminal investigation over the pic she took in a gym locker room.
We found out the brass over at LA Fitness went to cops Friday and filed the report, accusing the former Playboy Playmate of egregiously violating a member’s right of privacy by taking a pic of her while naked in the shower, and then humiliating her by posting the pic with a disgusting caption.
We’re told the police investigation is based on a criminal law prohibiting the dissemination of private images.
The woman in the pic has not come forward … the report lists “Jane Doe” as the victim.
Dani has already been punished … we’ve learned Playboy has suspended her from all Playmate activities including her show on Playboy Radio.
On the criminal front Dani could get a big break … if the victim never comes forward the case might well be dropped.
On the other hand, if the victim surfaces and plays ball, Dani could face 6 months in jail.
