Here’s a little piece of advice for those in trouble with the law: If you don’t want to be arrested, stay off social media.

You may recall that on July 28th, riots broke out in Huntington Beach, California following the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing competition. The melee resulted in property damage to stores in the area, small fires being set ablaze, toppling of port-a-potties, looting and fights in the streets and damage to police cars.

As is common now in the age of social media, photos and videos of the chaos went viral online, and police promised to take advantage of the postings to help make arrests in their followup investigations.
