A Kentucky teenager accused of fleeing from a DUI traffic accident was jailed again after ignoring a judge's order to delete her Facebook account.
Nobody was injured in the hit-and-run accident, but a Facebook post by driver Paula Asher, 18, so upset her victims that they asked the judge to intervene.
"My dumb [expletive] got a dui and I hit a car ... lol," Asher wrote on her Facebook profile after the crash.
The judge accused Asher of failing to take the charges seriously and ordered her to take down her Facebook page. When Asher did not comply, the judge slapped her with a two-day jail sentence for contempt of court.
"I really wasn't trying to make fun of [the crash]," Asher told LEX18.com, an NBC news site. "I didn't think 'lol' would put me in jail."
