LOL: Facebook Post About DUI Crash Lands Teen in JAIL

by at . Comments

Paula Asher, 18, was jailed for two days last week after a status update on Facebook about hitting another vehicle while driving under the influence. She posted, eloquently:

“My dumbass got a DUI and I hit a car LOL.”

LOL. Or WTF?

The four people in the car she struck didn't sustain injuries and are all fine. Their parents were not fine with Asher's Facebooking, however, and contacted a local judge.

When the judge ordered Paula to delete that post, she refused, and was promptly given a two-day jail sentence for contempt of court. She later apologized, finally.

“I didn’t think ‘LOL’ would put me in jail,” Paula wrote.

What law the judge invokied when ordering Asher to delete her FB comment is unclear, but the teen faces charges with DUI and fleeing the scene of an accident.

She is due in court to answer both counts October 27.

What do you think? Jail over LOLing: A fair sentence?

Anyone who would think that...getting a DUI and hitting a car in the process has to be a few lug nuts rattling in their hubcaps....I think she needs to sit her butt in jail for a little while!

In my opinion; drunk drivers are NO DIFFERENT than someone that would put a loaded gun to a Childs head! Think about it, your just playing with innocent peoples lives. I think you should get at least 1yr in jail. Because you hurt my child you're going hope they lock you up! Just sayin

This little girl should thank her stars she only got two days.Not only were you driving drunk but you hit someone car and drove off. She wasn't thinking if she hurt someone or destroyed someone's property instead she said "LOL" Laugh out loud, come on. That is just a slap to society and their safty face.

I feel this is appropriate. DUI hit and run by itself deserves punishment but this very small jail time for making light of such a reckless thing is irresponsible and deserves to not go unnoticed. Fortunately she did not hurt anyone but in so many DUI accidents this is not the case.
