In what can only be described as a night of epic genius, teenager Jacob Cox Brown not only drove home from a party drunk, but he hit not one but two cars on the way home, left both scenes, and then posted about it on Facebook.

On his Facebook page, Brown posted "Drivin drunk... classsic but to whoever's vehicle i hit i am sorry." Normally you would not post something like this for the world to see but Alcohol not only causes loose lops, but loose fingers as well.

 

Two of Brown's friends notified police of their buddy's post, and the police quickly arrested the teen. The police posted a press release which read "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."�
