Holbrook said he got hold of a cell phone and started snapping selfies. He posted them to Facebook and people are now wondering how he got his hands on a phone in the first place. "We were just trying to have a good time in jail. We're already here, why be miserable?" Holbrook said in an interview with Eyewitness News Reporter Jessi Starkey. "I said hi to a couple of people to let everyone know I was doing all right -- family and friends." Holbrook is keeping tight-lipped about where he found the cell phone. "It was within my reach, and I just got my hands on it," he said.
