FERGUSON, Mo. — When it comes to sharing secrets, pretty much the worst thing to do is take them to social media.

The St. Louis County Prosecutor’s office is investigating a leak in the grand jury of the Michael Brown case, after someone posted this on Twitter: “I know someone sitting on the grand jury. There isn’t enough at this point to warrant an arrest.”

After several people responded that that’s supposed to be a secret, the account was deleted.

Bear in mind, grand jurors aren’t even supposed to follow the news on their case, never mind talk to anyone about it.

So yeah, someone’s in trouble.
