Dude ‘Likes’ His Own Wanted Post On Facebook, Immediately Gets Arrested–For Being A Badass

Sometimes it’s fun to fuck with law enforcement.

Down boy! That’s not what I meant. But for real, don’t do that.

Law enforcement should be taken very seriously, and for that reason it is the perfect candidate to fuck around with. In good fun, of course. For example, when I was on summer break from college, my brothers and I threw a RAGER that you read about. Literally, you could read about it here. But, that’s a story for another day. Anyway, when the cops arrived, all stiff and sober, they handed us a piece of paper and a pen and told us to write down all the underage party-goers in attendance (my little brother was a sophomore in college at the time, I’m not a fucking creep.) Anyway, we obliged, kind of. Instead of snitching on our friends, we wrote down names like “Lexington Steele,” “Danny Tanner,” and “Topanga Lawrence” before our drunken laughter gave us away and we were all charged in the court of law with furnishing to minors. That was probably the least funny part.

Anyway, a dude named Levi Charles Reardon decided to have some good-natured fun and left a little trail of crumbs to help police arrest him after he was wanted for felony forgery for stealing a wallet and cashing four bogus checks.

When the Great Falls/Cascade County Crimestoppers posted one of Reardon’s previous mugshots to their Facebook page in an attempt to rally the public to bring him to justice, Reardon ‘liked’ the post. Talk about playing with fire. Love it.

Love the confidence.

Oh, but he was arrested a day later and now he’s in jail. Confidence is only cool when it’s warranted. Levi Charles Reardon, you’re a donkey.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
