I know I SHOULDN'T be shocked by this . . . teenagers put EVERYTHING on Facebook and seem to have NO wisdom on what they shouldn't share with the world. But Facebook posts like this STILL catch me off guard.
Around 1:00 A.M. on New Year's Day, 18-year-old Jacob Cox-Brown of Astoria, Oregon was driving DRUNK. He sideswiped two parked cars, fled the scene, and went home.
At which point, of course, he decided to post about it on Facebook. He wrote, quote, "Drivin' drunk . . . classic. [Winking face]. But to whoever's vehicle I hit I am sorry."
One of his Facebook friends saw that and forwarded it to the cops. They arrested him later that day on two counts of failing to perform the duties of a driver. He wasn't charged with drunk driving because the Facebook post isn't enough evidence to prove he was legally drunk at the time.
Here's a screen capture from his facebook page of the post:
