A Las Vegas woman is back behind bars after commenting under a Facebook news post, that had asked for help finding the fugitive, NY Post reported. 

Marion Reyes, 36, who has seven DUI arrests, surrendered to the police’s traffic bureau after authorities released a message alleging that she cut off her ankle monitor.

“I never cut it off!!! An officer cut it off when I turned myself in. They continued to release me,”

Reyes wrote in the comments of a News 8 story about her case that was posted to Facebook.

The Las Vegas Traffic Bureau responded to Reyes’s comment stating,

“Then why not turn yourself in now? Let’s get this sorted out tonight.”

Reyes apparently took the advice of officers and turned herself in on Friday morning. A judge ordered Reyes to spend two days in jail after not attending a court date she had for a felony DUI program, News 8 reported.

Reyes will serve

“at least six months of home confinement and must have a device on her car, preventing her from driving impaired,”

News 8 said. According to the outlet, she will be sent to prison if she receives another DUI charge, per the plea deal.
