Status: Arrested

Once again proving that social media is dangerous, a fugitive from the law has landed himself behind bars through his activities on Facebook.
Wanted on a charge of aggravated assault, Anthony Lescowitch of Freeland Pennsylvania shared a police status update featuring his mugshot on the department’s   Facebook page
That was his first mistake. 
As the Times Leader reports, it took only 45 minutes from Lescowitch sharing the update and mocking police for the police to arrest him. 
Lescowitch’s second mistake was responding to a reply to his mocking post. 
He thought he was taking up and offer to meet from a sexy admirer, but it was really a police officer using a fake profile.
The Freeland police could not resist another update featuring Lescowitch’s mugshot: “CAPTURED!!!!!! SHARES OUR STATUS ON FACEBOOK ABOUT HIMSELF, CAPTURED 45 MINUTES LATER.”
