Can’t Believe the Stupid Things Done on Social Sites. Part I

Police arrested six suspects between the ages of 16 and 23 who allegedly wrecked up a hotel room, then put photos of the damage on Twitter.

Oh, and just to be thorough, the suspects also posted photos of the nearby spa area that was damaged, too, at the hotel in South Charleston, West Virginia.

The party-goers “caused about $13,885 in damage, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court,” reports the Charleston Gazette. “That total does not include damage the men had allegedly done to the hotel’s sprinkler system, the complaint states.”

South Charleston Police Officer E.M. Peterson said the suspects apparently rented the room to party. Three of the six “wrote messages back and forth on Twitter as they destroyed the hotel room, and posted pictures of the carnage along the way,” including photos of themselves, the newspaper said.

That made it pretty easy for police to ID and arrest the suspects.

“These kids handed me this case,” Peterson told the newspaper.
