Atlanta Teens Allegedly Break into CNN Newsroom to Check Facebook

Two Atlanta teens apparently just couldn’t wait to check their Facebook pages and were arrested early Friday morning after breaking into a CNN Atlanta’s newsroom to get a social networking fix.

Aldayne Fearon, 18, and Francis Mutemwa, 17, jumped over a ledge from a nearby hotel into the CNN newsroom. When they were arrested by police, the dynamic duo were caught checking Facebook.

Both initially declined to give law enforcement their names, but eventually relented. (Maybe because their names were on the Facebook pages?)

Even more laughable, the pair apparently drove from their home to the CNN headquarters in a red Mercedes whose ownership is in question.

Each man was charged with criminal trespassing and held on a $500 bond. I don’t suspect they’ll have much time for Facebook in jail.
