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.
