Whoever argues that drinking alcohol does not make you stupider in the long run might want to take a second look (although at the end of it, one could also conclude otherwise, that said teen is rather short on the smarts department in the first place) at an Oregon teen who boasted over his Facebook account that he was driving while under the influence of alcohol, apologizing to owners of the cars that he hit along the way. The men in blue were quick to their feet to make an arrest, and teen Cox-Brown’s Facebook page has also seen the boast removed, for obvious reasons.
Cox-Brown posted this to his Facebook page: “Drivin drunk… classsic but to whoever’s vehicle i hit i am sorry. :P.” Talk about sharing the wrong information, as the police subsequently issued a press release which read as follows: “Astoria Police have an active social media presence. It was a private Facebook message to one of our officers that got this case moving, though. When you post…on Facebook, you have to figure that it is not going to stay private long.”
