Drink-driver caught out by Facebook

I was mildly amused at the tale of a 20-year-old college student who, after being busted by the Plod and accused of causing an accident whilst drunk-in-charge, apparently got bored waiting for the case to come up in court.

Whilst waiting for his case date, the student is said to have dressed up as a prisoner and allowed his pals to take a few piccies, uploading them to Facebook, the social networking site.

Fast forward a few weeks and, whilst in court, The Judge was shown the pictures by the prosecution.

Which went down really well indeed, as the judge sentenced the student to two years inside. And not all of the sentence was for causing the accident, but some of it was for dressing up as a prisoner and showing no remorse for his actions.

Words like `pea' and `brain' spring to mind...
