‘LOL’ Facebook Post After DUI Accident Lands Woman in Jail

A Kentucky woman’s cavalier ‘LOL” comment on Facebook about an alleged drunk driving accident that police believe she caused led a judge to send her to jail for two days and force her off the social networking site.

Paula Asher slammed into a car carrying four teenagers in Woodford County, Ky., in July and left the scene, police allege. Parents of the teens were upset to see a seemingly flip comment about the incident on Facebook after the fact and told the court about it, police told WLEX.

Asher received four charges stemming from the incident, including leaving the scene of accident, driving under influence of alcohol, and possession of a controlled substance, Tricia Kittinger with Woodford County Circuit Court told ABC News.

Woodford District Judge Mary Jane Phelps wasn’t pleased either when she learned that Asher had written, “My dumb bass got a DUI and I hit a car…LOL” on Facebook, according to Louisville NBC affiliate WAVE. “LOL” is an abbreviation for “laughing out loud.”

When Asher initially appeared in court after the July 20 accident, the judge told her to delete her Facebook account, Kittinger said. Asher did not take it seriously, and was charged with contempt of court when the judge learned her Facebook page was still active.

“Apparently it was a condition, and they said she did not get it off, and so they charged her with contempt of court,” Kittinger told ABC News.

On August 28, Judge Phelps immediately placed Asher in county jail for 48 hours.

When she returned to court on September 10, she told the court that she has now shut down her Facebook page.

“The defendant is now working, she is not driving, and agreed she is no longer on Facebook,” Kittinger said.   ::snipping2::

And I say LOL to her - she got what she deserved.
