Ohio Man Arrested After Posting Video of Himself Drinking While Driving
An Ohio man was arrested after posting video of himself drinking and driving to Facebook.
The video led to his arrest hours later after a tipster reported it to Franklin County authorities.
A copy of the 12-second video provided by the sheriff's office shows 28-year-old Dustin Rittgers sitting in a vehicle, looking into the camera and taking a swig from a partially covered bottle. As the clip ends, the camera is flipped around to show a hand with only one finger raised to guide the steering wheel.
The Franklin County Sheriff's office said: "This situation shows the power of social media. Social media led us straight to this suspect to stop him before he was able to hurt himself or others. Social media is another crime fighting tool we use to keep Franklin County residents safe."
