Washington State football player D’Jimon Jones will appear in Whitman County Court June 8, after being charged with misdemeanor vandalism. The charges stem from a March 4 incident, when an intoxicated Jones allegedly peed in an elevator and damaged a paper towel dispenser.

Jones, a redshirt freshman defensive back, has not been arrested according to the Moscow-Pullman Daily News. The police were in contact with Jones on the night of the crime due to his level of intoxication, but didn’t learn of his other exploits until later.

In fact, the police needed the help of a third party to charge Jones with a crime. A video was posted to Snapchat that allegedly depicted the vandalism in Northside Residence Hall. An individual who saw the video then showed it to the police.

While Jones is in the wrong and drunkenly did something dumb while being filmed, I still want to ask the question, who among us would take that to the police? We know what it’s like to be 18 and living in the dorms, and I don’t understand how one would want a fellow Coug arrested over this.

This issue seems more on the level of an RA than a county courthouse.

The moral of this story is to not put anything on social media that someone could get arrested for. Are no social media related arrests too much to ask for?
