The one thing you shouldn’t do if you have a warrant out for your arrest? Go on social media to taunt the police who are looking for you.
Chloe Jones of Pennsylvania learned this lesson the hard way.
Last week, after realizing she’d been named to the Greene County Sheriff’s Office’s “Top Ten Most Wanted List” for failing to appear in court on unrelated assault charges, the 23-year-old Wind Ridge woman used the opportunity to tease law enforcement.
“Do you guys do pick up or delivery?,” Jones apparently commented on the Greene County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page, according to investigators.
The comment was followed by four crying-from-laughter emojis.
In the ensuing hours, fighting words were exchanged between Jones and several other Facebook users, critical of the woman’s online barb.
During the course of the bickering, Jones revealed she was in a hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Officers from the Morgantown Police Department went to visit Jones at the hospital, confirmed she was wanted on an active warrant and took her into custody.
She was extradited to Pennsylvania soon after her arrest.
“Ms. Chloe Jones and her witty comments are taking a hiatus from our Facebook comments section due to the jail not having internet for her to use,” the Greene County Sheriff’s Office posted to its Facebook page following her arrest.
