Oregon teen arrested after writing about drunk-driving hit-and-run on Facebook
For most people, Facebook is a place to share your thoughts, boast about your accomplishments and show off pictures of you, your friends and your family.
But for one Astoria man, it was also a place to share his crime – a crime he had yet to be caught for, until now.
“Drivin drunk … classsic 😉 but to whoever’s vehicle i hit i am sorry. :P”
