OMAHA, Neb. — To stay off law enforcement’s radar, Jesean Morris may have wanted to avoid a fundraising effort that has rocked the online world. Perhaps the 20-year-old Omaha man should have just made a donation and left the ice in the bucket.

Instead, Morris — wanted for violating terms of his parole — posted to Facebook a video of his try at the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a fundraiser in which people pour a container of water and ice on their head in lieu of making a donation. Many participants do both.

The video ended Morris’ time on the lam.
