(iWIDK By Brittany Hahn) – Wow, you’re REALLY cool.
Jacob Cox-Brown, 18, of Astoria Oregon posted a message on Facebook yesterday saying, “Drivin drunk… classic but to whoever’s vehicle i hit i am sorry. ” which then helped police investigate the hit-and-run accident he caused.
Astoria police mentioned to The Daily Astorian that a lot of people assume that what people post on Facebook is private just because their profile is set up that way, but once a person hits “post,” it’s out there.
Cox-Brown, thinking it was cool to post the status, was jailed and charged with two counts of failing to perform his duties as a driver.
The best part is, two of his Facebook “friends” turned him in.
