Following the incident, Asher had written, "My dumb bass got a DUI and I hit a car...LOL" on Facebook. "LOL" is an abbreviation for "laughing out loud," ABC News reports.

According to the report, Asher received four charges stemming from the incident, including leaving the scene of accident, driving under influence of alcohol, and possession of a controlled substance.

When Asher initially appeared in court after the July 20 accident, she was ordered to delete her Facebook account. However, she was further charged with contempt of court after a judge learned that her Facebook page was still active.

On August 28, Asher was held in a county jail for 48 hours.

When she returned to court on September 10, she clarified that she has now shut down her Facebook page.

Asher later claimed that she was not trying to make light of the accident on Facebook, and she's surprised a brief comment would land her behind bars.

"I didn't think LOL would put me in jail," she said.
