Taunting Tweets Lands Texas Woman in Jail: Twitter Reacts
It never ceases to amaze me how emboldened people are when they’re posting junk on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Users will spout off the dumbest, meanest, and most idiotic quips and comments known to mankind, all because they think they’re safe and sound behind their keyboards.
Unfortunately for Mahogany Mason-Kelly, that isn’t the case.
You see, Mason-Kelly had an outstanding warrant, and up until she decided to share this fact with the virtual world, police had yet to catch her. However, all of that changed when this insanely intelligent and impossibly classy lady decided to post the following taunt on her Twitter account:
I still gotta warrant in pearland..those pigs will NEVER catch me!!!…NEVER!!!
Looks like she spoke a little too soon.
Authorities weren’t overly thrilled with Mason-Kelly’s declaration, and decided to look into her case. Turns out she did, in fact, have an outstanding warrant. A few of them, to be exact. Furthermore, when police took her into custody on Friday, they discovered something a bit more alarming: When she was recently pulled over for yet another traffic violation, Mahogany had given officers her sister’s name. This, of course, only added to the woman’s increasingly severe legal woes.
As a direct result of her cockiness, Mason-Kelly has been hit with $1,877 in fines and $4,000 in bonds. She will appear in court to discuss the matter in the near future. Additionally, her Twitter account has been deleted.
That, I think, is probably for the best.
