Teen’s Facebook Boast Leads to Arrest
A drunken driver was busted after bragging on Facebook he was driving under the influence of alcohol and hit a vehicle.
Jacob Cox-Brown, 18, posted a status on Facebook “Drivin drunk … classsic 😉 but to whoever’s vehicle i hit i am sorry. :P”
Police in Oregon had been looking for a suspect of a hit-and-run crash involving a parked car being sideswiped, causing considerable damage. A car parked in front of the vehicle also had some damages.
When friends of Cox-Brown alerted police, they checked out his car and it bore damage consistent with the crash.
Cox-Brown was arrested on two counts of failing to perform the duties of a driver.
