3 emojis got these guys arrested

3 emojis got these guys arrested

I say it over and over again. You have to be careful with what you post on Facebook and social media sites - even if there's no actual text involved. It's an act that has got a lot of people in a lot of trouble.

Here are two more to add to that list. Two men in South Carolina were arrested this month for posting threatening emojis on a third, unnamed man's Facebook wall. How is this even possible?

Emojis are more than just faces. There's food, weather, places, animals, cars and much more. But it was the combination below that resulted in the arrest of 29-year-old David Fuentes and 29-year-old Matthew Cowan.

Fist. Finger Pointing. Ambulance. These threatening emojis indicate, at least to law officials, that Fuentes and Cowan planned to beat up their victim so bad, that he would be sent away in an ambulance.

Now, this isn't the only indication that police had that Cowan and Fuentes were planning on beating up the victim. The duo had previously been named in an incident report in May, claiming they had tried to assault the victim at his home. The threatening emojis were the last straw, and the men are now facing up to five years in prison if they are convicted of stalking charges.
