Suspected Drunk Driver Joked about Alcohol Use on Facebook
MATTHEWS, N.C. - Until today, when his profile was deleted, 28-year-old Justin Jones said this was his favorite quote on his Facebook page: "I just read an article on the dangers of heavy drinking. Scared the ---- out of me. So that's it, after today no more ------- reading!"
The Union County Clerk of Courts confirms Jones was also arrested for DWI in 2010. Marie Crook, and her daughter Jennifer Hunt were killed in the DWI crash on Wednesday night. Jones was taken to a local hospital, treated, and scheduled to be released today. Hunt's two daughters were also expected to be released from the hospital with broken bones today.
The family struggled financially and now friends are trying to raise money to cover the cost of utilities and rent so the kids can stay at their home. For more information, click on the Web Links tab.
