Drunk driver hits car, brags on Facebook, leads to arrest

GasBuddy Blog -- Teens that drink and drive are clearly not the brightest crayons in the box, but in the case of one teen in Astoria, Oregon, he may not even be in the box of crayons.

he offending lad did three stupid things: 1- He drank too much! 2- He drove while intoxicated! 3-He ran away from the scene. .4- He compounded it, by confessing on Facebook perhaps hoping to be turned in!

Does this kid have parents? Who provided him with the Scion, the alcoholic beverages, etc., enabling him to continue exhibiting monumental stupidity?
