Word to the wise: If you’re gonna break into someone’s house and throw a rager, don’t post the pictures to prove it on Facebook. That’s what appears to have happened in South Carolina recently, when a family went on vacation and the father was browsing Facebook when he noticed pictures of teens partying (and puking) in an all-too-familiar setting—his own home. The raucous teens were apparently classmates of his kids, but he was less than amused and tipped off cops. “The kids came back the next day and cleaned everything up, I guess,” says the dad. “If someone hadn’t been bragging by posting on Facebook, no one ever would have known. They wouldn’t have been caught.” Further evidence of less-than-savvy use of Facebook: Cops were able to identify the kids via photo tags.

Scottish firefighters said it took them about 15 minutes to rescue a man whose head became lodged in a roadside trash can. Grampian Fire and Rescue responders arrived at the scene, near the center of Aberdeen, around 5:45 p.m. Sunday and cut through the trash receptacle to free the man, who was treated for facial injuries at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, STV reported Monday.

Kane County sheriff’s deputies said Alex Robinson, 37, of Aurora, was due in court on allegations of violating his probation from the 2006 cocaine delivery case when he emptied his pockets at the security checkpoint and dropped a bag of cocaine into a bin. Kane County sheriff’s Lt. Pat Gengler said. “It’s not like you don’t know there’s a checkpoint coming up. How do you forget that?” Robinson was arrested and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance.
