No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

When you’ve got an outstanding warrant, it’s best not to draw attention to yourself.

That’s advice 20-year-old Jesean Morris decided to ignore when he posted an “Ice Bucket Challenge” video to Facebook.

The Ice Bucket Challenge is a charity fundraiser for ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease), where participants are ‘nominated’ to douse themselves with ice water, and also donate to the charity.

In this case, a “friend” reported Morris’ video to police, after learning he was on parole from assault charges.

Police stopped Morris shortly afterward as he tried to flee the home. That’s when the charitable-minded ex-con then racked up a wealth of new charges, including assaulting an officer, criminal mischief, resisting arrest, and criminal impersonation.

He’s now cooling his heels in jail.
