Woman may go to jail for the dumbest Facebook update ever
People tend to underestimate the power of social media and think they can post whatever they like. A 22-year-old woman from Michigan made the mistake of bragging on Facebook about drunk driving and passing a breathalyzer test. Now she may be going to jail because of it. Colleen Cudney who is on probation after a 2012 DUI is forbidden to drink and proved to have violated that rule after gloating on Facebook about her close call with the law.
Some people will simply never learn!

The incident occurred the day after St. Patrick's Day when Cudney was called in to take a breathalyzer test at a probation office. After passing the test she logged onto Facebook and wrote: "Buzz killer for me, I had to breathalyze [sic] this morning and I drank yesterday but I passed thank god lol my dumba**," she wrote on her status.
The silly woman thought she had gotten away with murder, but police enforcement kept a close watch on her page. They spotted her status and called her in for a urine sample to which she refused. This is because she knew that it would give away that she had been drinking. Although she didn't take the test, she is subject to appear in court this week. The woman didn't think through her immature behavior because apparently her probation was almost over.
Due to her violation, when she turns up in court she may be facing 93 days in jail. This was totally a dumb move on her behalf and as they say, karma is a bitch! No one should be bragging about driving drunk on Facebook period because you never know how other people might take it. She could have easily killed another person driving intoxicated. If she gets thrown in jail then maybe this will teach her a lesson once and for all.
