On New Year’s, an 18-year-old in Oregon was driving drunk and sideswiped two parked cars. He fled the scene, went home . . . and posted about what he’d just done on Facebook. One of his friends forwarded that post to the cops, who arrested him on two counts of failing to perform the duties of a driver.
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.
