Ky. Prankster Arrested for Facebook Photo

April 19, 2012  | 

A 20-year-old Kentucky man was arrested, after he posted a photo on Facebook showing him appearing to siphon gas from a Jenkins Police Department cruiser and making an obscene gesture.

Michael Baker, in an interview with WYMT, said he stole a little gas from the cruiser and wasn't sorry for doing so. His girlfriend, who snapped the pic, said the couple didn't steal the gas, but was sorry, reports WKYT.

Baker was arrested for unlawful taking.

You have the right to remain silent, and a lawyer appointed to you if you can't afford one. But, anything you say on facebook can and will be used against you in a court of law. Do you wish to post anything now on facebook?
