Police in Astoria, Ore. say an 18-year-old boy was arrested after he boasted about drinking and driving.
Officers responded to a home on 5th Street only one hour into the new year after getting a report of a hit and run. No one was hurt, but two cars had been sideswiped.
Later that day, the same officer was messaged on Facebook by someone reporting seeing 18-year-old Jacob Cox-Brown post about driving drunk and that he was in some sort of collision.
The post read, “Drivin drunk… classsic ; ) but to whoever’s vehicle i hit i am sorry. : P”
According to a news release from Astoria Police, another Facebook friend of Cox-Brown’s called police to say the same thing.
Pieces of a car found at the scene were matched to a car registered to the teen, officers say.
Cox-Brown was arrested and booked into the Clatsop County Jail on charges of failing to perform the duties of a driver (hit and run).
