An 18-year-old in Oregon joked on Facebook about driving drunk and getting in a hit-and-run accident, then was arrested after "friends" saw the posting and reported it to police. No one was injured, thankfully, but two cars were damaged.

"We have used Facebook previously as an investigative tool, but this is the first time I believe we have arrested someone who posted they had committed the crime," Brad Johnston, deputy chief of police in Astoria, Ore., told NBC News on Friday.

Here's what Jacob Cox-Brown of Astoria wrote on his Facebook page on New Year's Day, not realizing he'd hit two vehicles, not just one:

Drivin drunk... classsic ;) but to whoever's vehicle i hit i am sorry. :P

Thanks everyone for such great comments!

Pop, Still vibrating I see! LMAO... you are now representing yourself as America. Last time I looked at the final Presidential balloting, you're opinion is so in the minority. Tell the truth big boy!

Stupid is as stupid does.

Even more depressing, only two of his "friends" reported his crime.

"Two of Cox-Brown's 656-plus friends on the social network took notice and separately contacted Astoria police to report what they'd seen."

The truth shall set you free! As proven by the two friends that contacted the police.

Now we need more Obama friends to set themselves free!

Wouldnt be surprised if his parents and grandparents refer to him as "...but he's such a good boy...". Furthermore I know some bleeding heart Liberals in Illinois who would say "...but he's just a kid...". Well this 'kid' is 18 and by that age should know better. He screwed up bigtime and now faces the consequences. It would be ridiculous AND economically and socially devastating if the legal age were raised to 28 years. Late teens and 20 somethings are no longer kids.

I'm glad his friends had the courage to turn him in. Pretty stupid to be posting his crime thinking it will remain a secret.

They need to adapt the Darwin Awards to accommodate idiots like this. So he didn't remove himself from the gene pool. Not this time, but surely if he keeps on in this manner he'll git-er-done, won't he?

The arrest had nothing to do with the drinking. It was 100% due to him admitting he had hit some cars and left the scene of the accident.
