A Teenage Girl Got Arrested Because She Posted a Video on YouTube Saying She Stole a Car and Robbed a Bank

Hannah Sabata, a girl who's only 19 years old, did something a lot of teenage girls do: post a video to YouTube in which they talk to the camera. But unlike most 19-year-olds, Sabata bragged about stealing a car and robbing a bank, even flashing the cash to prove it. She, um, got arrested because of that video.

The video's title doesn't even try to hide her crime, it's called Chick Bank Robber and in the video, Sabata talks about her great day because she has a new Pontiac Grand Am, saying "my new car is shiny. Of course I took the plates off already" and showed a sign which said, "then I robbed a bank with a gun, a pillow case and a note."

She literally shows off all the cash she got, fans herself and goes on to talk about other things that teenage girls talk about. According to the York News Times:

In the video, Sabata is wearing the same clothes as she was wearing at the time of her arrest – and the outfit matches the clothes worn by the female bank robber as captured by surveillance cameras.

I guess I shouldn't expect her to change clothes when she indicted herself with a YouTube video confession, right? [York News Times via UberGizmo]
