Stupid Criminals: A Man Who Broke Out of Jail Was Caught After He Posted a Video on Facebook
In this edition of Stupid Criminals, we find a guy who is stupid enough to post a video on Facebook after he breaks out of jail.
According to WKYT-TV, a guy named Justin Taulbee from Jackson, Kentucky was supposed to be arraigned earlier this month on robbery, probation violation, and resisting arrest charges. But as he was being transported to the courthouse from jail, he escaped.
The police were looking for him for three days without any luck, until they got a huge break in the case from Taulbee himself.
He filmed a video talking about his current legal situation, and had his friend post it on Facebook and tag him in it. (Warning: NSFW due to graphic language.)
In the video he claims he was released, then kind of rambles. You can't tell if he's impersonating a crazy Southern lawyer, or if he's just nuts.
But the police saw it, went to the friend's house to investigate, and found Justin in bed with his girlfriend.
So they arrested him again, and then added an escape charge.
