Man's Facebook Post Helps Police Catch Him

A North Texas man learned the hard way about what not to post on Facebook.

Mineral Wells police said Eddie Smith, 22, bragged on the social media site "So, I have 16 warrants out right now. Lol they know where I'm at tho [sic] so, it must not be TOO bad."

Someone saw Smith's post and called police. Officers arrested him a short time later at his house.

Most of Smith's warrants are for traffic citations.

Officers said Smith isn't able to pay his fines, so he'll likely spend the next few weeks in the Palo Pinto County Jail.
