(Newser) – In the grand tradition of those sought by the law making ill-advised Facebook posts comes this arrest from Omaha featuring, of course, an ice bucket challenge. Jesean Morris took part in the challenge and proudly posted his results, reports NBC News. The problem is that a tipster saw the post, recognized the house where it was made, knew Morris was wanted for violating parole on assault charges, and made a call to police, reports the Smoking Gun. The 20-year-old allegedly lied about his identity at first but is now behind bars again. Click to read about other notable ice bucket challenges.
