Kid Brags About Drinking and Driving on Facebook Gets Arrested

Kids Lesson one: Do not drink and drive. Lesson two: Do not brag about drinking and driving on Facebook.

An Oregon teenager has landed himself in the county jail for what must be one of the dumbest Facebook gaffes ever. Jacob Cox posted this status when he got home the other night.

“Drivin drunk … classsic 😉 but to whoever’s vehicle i hit i

am sorry. :P”

Upon reading Cox’s post, two of the 18-year-old’s Facebook friends contacted the Astoria Police Department to report it; it became vital information after two officers responded to a 1am report of a hit-and-run, which left a white Scion plus an adjacent vehicle damaged in their parking spots.

After collecting pieces of the Scion’s damaged taillight and bumper cover, the police received tips about the Facebook post and headed over to the home of Cox-Brown. They arrested the young man, charging him with two counts of failing to perform the duties of a driver.He was held in the Clatsop County Jail and released on his own recognizance, and is scheduled to appear in Astoria Municipal Court on January 23.

So kids once again, do not drink and drive. Do not brag about doing something stupid like hitting a car drunk.
