Jesean Morris Arrested For Parole Violation After Posting 'Ice Bucket Challenge' Video On Facebook

'Ice Bucket Challenge' Video Leads To Man's Arrest

A man's ice bucket challenge video has landed him in the cooler.

Jesean Morris, 20, was arrested in Omaha on Friday for a parole violation after he posted a video on Facebook showing himself undertaking the "Ice Bucket Challenge."

Morris was convicted in 2010 for two felony convictions -- assault and use of a firearm during the commission of a crime. He was 16 at the time, but charged as an adult for his role in a shootout that left two men wounded.

According to the Smoking Gun, a Facebook video of Morris' 'Ice Bucket Challenge' led police to his whereabouts. A tipster saw the post and recognized the house shown in the video. He contacted Omaha police and gave an address where he believed the suspect to be.

Two officers from the gang unit watched the house and eventually saw him climb into the back seat of a Chrysler PT Cruiser. The cops pulled the car over to arrest Morris.

During the arrest, the suspect allegedly gave officials a false name and birth date, spit on an officer and damaged the patrol car, reports.

Morris was booked into the Douglas County Jail on the warrant, as well as suspicion of criminal impersonation, resisting arrest and assaulting an officer. A judge set Morri's bail at $40,000.

The ALS Association, has raised more $79.7 million since June 29, due largely to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, according to the New York Daily News.
