A man accused of rape in Alabama got into an online argument with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office on the office's Facebook page:
U.S. Marshals took Dustin McCombs into custody today in Ohio, said Chief Deputy Randy Christian.
The U.S. Marshal's Gulf Coast Regional Task for in Birmingham shared information with their counterparts in Ohio who tracked down the fugitive.
McComb's was featured on the Jefferson County Sheriff Department's Facebook page as its "Creep of the Week" because of an outstanding forcible rape charge.
McCombs apparently decided that was a challenge, taking up a posting duel with the department on Facebook, according to the website Gizmodo.
Of course, McCombs has not been convicted of the crime that led to his arrest warrant, but wow is he stupid. The entire exchange is still available on Failbook, and worth a look. So is the sheriff's Facebook page, which seems like an effective use of social media by government.
