People caught driving while intoxicated in Montgomery County, Texas, are being busted in more ways than one. The county district attorney's office is now calling them out in the status-sphere by posting their names on its Twitter page for everyone to see.

The first tweets listing people charged with DWI popped up during the Christmas holiday when police beefed up patrols.

They're part of an effort by District Attorney Brett Ligon to crack down on DWIs in a growing county with a reputation for dangerous roads, said Assistant District Attorney Warren Diepraam, who manages the prosecutor's Twitter page and came up with the idea.
