Drunk Driver Posts Drunk Pics on Facebook

A 20-year old woman, who is awaiting trial for reckless homicide and aggravated DUI charges after a collision that killed a motorcyclist, was stupid enough to post drunk pictures on her Facebook page landing her back in an Illinois courtroom this week.

As a condition of her bail, the defendant had been ordered not to consume alcohol or be around people who are drinking. Of course, she isn't even old enough to drink legally. So doing so would be criminal with or without the bail violation.

The judge in the case ordered a SCRAM bracelet, a device that goes around an offenders ankle and measures alcohol. Unfortunately, the SCRAM bracelet won't stop this girl from getting behind the wheel of a car drunk like an ignition interlock device would.

Clearly her judgment is questionable and a much safer bet would be to make her install an interlock on her car.
