This has got to take the top spot of Dumbest Facebook Post Ever!  A teenager in Oregon ratted himself out by posting about his drinking and driving experience of the night, where he hit a car and left the scene of the accident, a hit and run, and they used the evidence to arrest the kid!

I bet it seemed like a good idea at the time.  When you're drunk, you tend to think bad ideas are actually good ones.

Yahoo News reports:


An Oregon teenager has landed himself in the county jail for what must be one of the dumbest Facebook gaffes ever: posting about his drunk-driving hit-and-run escapade.

"Drivin drunk ... classsic ;) but to whoever's vehicle i hit i am sorry. :P" was the early-morning post that quickly led to the at-home arrest of Jacob Cox-Brown in the Oregon-coast city of Astoria, reports the Daily Astorian.

Upon reading Cox-Brown's post, two his Facebook friends contacted the Astoria Police Department to report it.  And it just so happened that 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 the tips from Facebook, with the pieces of the car in hand, police took a trip to Cox-Brown's house and it all matched up so he was arrested and charged with two counts of failing to perform the duties of a driver.

"Nearly nine hours had elapsed between the report and the confrontation, and the driver was no longer in his car, Deputy Chief Brad Johnston told Yahoo! Shine, which is why there was no driving-while-intoxicated charge."
