Chalk this one up in the world’s dumbest criminals column. Police made an example out of a teenager from Oregon who boasted about driving drunk on Facebook.
“Drivin drunk… classic but whoever’s vehicle i hit i am sorry. ,” wrote the clueless 18-year-old.
According to local news channel KGW, two people tipped the officers via Facebook about the post. After inspecting the most-likely-profusely-sweating/hungover teen’s car, the damage on his vehicle matched that of two other vehicles hit earlier that New Year’s morning.

The suspect was charged with two counts of “failing to perform the duties of a driver,” but not drunk driving, because a Facebook post is apparently not sufficient evidence of intoxication, according to KGW’s report from Deputy Chief Brad Johnston.
When interviewed the brain surgeon said he regretted writing the incriminating post but thought it was “blown way out of proportion”.
