“Catch Me if You Can” Posts Dumb Social Media Criminal

“Catch me if you can” was the message left, along with a video posted to Facebook, by an insanely crazy motorcycle rider through heavy traffic at 100 mph. Alberto Rodriquez exuded extreme confidence in his ability to openly defy the police and get away with it.

Unfortunately for Mr. Rodriquez, the police happened onto the whereabouts of the extreme motorcyclist and arrested him while they were investigating a report of a stolen bike. Rodriquez was captured as he ran from the house where the stolen motorcycle was being stashed.

According to Fox News, the Facebook video, which was shot with a helmet cam, was posted a while ago, but the police did not receive word of it until just recently and worked swiftly to catch the dangerous motorcyclist. Rodriquez was wanted on two felony warrants and one family violence misdemeanor charge. He may also face charges for the stolen motorcycle.

The police were aided in the capture by reports from civilians about the video and by other video taken by at least one person who saw the motorcyclist as he drove down the crowded freeway. Social Media solves another crime!
