Dumbass of the Year? Escaped Fugitive Updates Facebook Status, Alerts Cops - Travis A. Nicolaysen

What do you do if you're on the run from the cops and being hunted by a tracking dog? Update your Facebook status, of course! Especially if you're Travis A. Nicolaysen of Port Angeles, Washington, pictured right. After updating his status from "Commiting a Crime" to "Hiding From the Cops" he was found by police and booked on a number of oustanding warrants. "Failure to get a Decent Haircut" is probably one of them.

Travis A. Nicolaysen escaped from officers in two foot chases on Apr. 4 and a dragnet that included a police dog tracking him through a Port Angeles neighborhood.  Police were searching for the 26-year-old after he allegedly failed to check in with his parole officer since January, the Peninsula Daily News reported.  One friend posted to his account: "cops all over you." Nicolaysen responded the next day with: "got away thanks bro."
