An Oregon man was arrested as a result of a late night incident in which he was guilty of F.U.I. – Facebooking While Intoxicated.
Jacob Cox-Brown hit his own wall after hitting a stranger's car, posting a status update that read: "Drivin drunk ... clas=ssic ;) but to whoever's vehicle i hit i am sorry. :P”
One of the 18-year-old's friends forwarded the note to the local police department, while another took the name to call the station to alert an officer to Jacob's antics.
He was hauled in the next day, with cops issuing a statement that read, “When you post ... on Facebook, you have to figure that it is not going to stay private long.” (Daily Astorian)
A man in China was fed up with his son being out of work because he spent too much time with a group of friends, so he hired some hit men to kill them off – which was perfectly legal, since they were only video game characters.
The peeved papa, identified only as Mr. Feng, kept pestering his son to get a job and hit the books, but had no luck, because the kid was completely obsessed with online gaming. Figuring his nagging was doing no good, the man sought out some equally avid gamers and paid them to keep wiping out his son's online alter-egos. (CNET)
A New York City man found a new use for an online dating service, using it to re-connect with a dear friend he'd lost touch with – namely, his lost cell phone!
Musician Nadav Nirenberg had left his iPhone in the back seat of a cab on New Year's Eve, and had no luck in getting it back, despite calling several times to offer a reward to whoever picked it up. He then noticed that the guy who did find it had begun using it to access his dating profile in a "creepy and disturbing" way – leading him to create a fake account as a female in order to lure the creep into a trap and retrieve the phone.
The plan worked like a charm, and the guy showed up for a romantic evening doused in cologne and carrying a bottle of wine – as well as the phone, which he turned over without much of a fight. Nirenberg added, "As he was walking away, I said, 'You smell great, though.'" (New York Post)
