A wanted man in Detroit is about to see his days of freedom cut very short after he taunted the police department in a Facebook post.
The man who calls himself “Champagne Torino,” but is known by cops as Michael, commented on a post by the Redford Township Police Department saying simply, “You guys suck!” That got the department’s attention and the page’s administrator threatened to block him. That got the man’s competitive juices flowing and he issued a challenge to the police.
Michael, who has several outstanding warrants, said that if the department’s next Facebook post got 1,000 shares, he would turn himself in. He also promised to come with a dozen doughnuts and offered to pick up every piece of trash at local schoolyards. It took about an hour for the department to surpass a thousand shares, but they’re still waiting for “Champagne Torino” to turn himself in.
