Don’t you hate when you’re scrolling through Facebook and you accidentally Like your own wanted picture? This man got arrested for doing just that. 

Twenty-three-year-old Levi Charles Readon came across his mugshot on the Great Falls/Cascade County Crimestoppers Facebook Page, and was apparently smitten enough to dispense a Like. 

Don’t believe it? Check it out:


The technologically inept young man was wanted for felony forgery in Great Falls, Mont., after stealing a wallet and cashing bogus checks. He was arrested soon after his social media gaffe. Definitely be careful when clicking next time.
