Man loses Facebook bet with police, turns himself in with doughnuts

Wanted man who wanted Facebook likes turns self in

Michigan Facebook fugitive 'surprised' by shares before turning self in

A wanted man in MI surrendered to police on Monday - with a box of doughnuts - after he challenged the Redford Township Police Department to get 1,000 shares on a Facebook post.

A MI man who agreed to turn himself in to jail for probation violations if police could get 1,000 shares on a Facebook post did so Tuesday after the challenge was easily met. And that's a promise. "And I'll pick up every piece of litter around all your public schools let's see if you can get those shares".

They did. And he did. A bus driver spotted one large brown bag that appeared to be moving on its own, and police were called to intercept it at the airport as it was being collected.

'We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback'.

Michael Martin Zaydel, who was wanted for outstanding misdemeanor warrants, turned himself in on Monday, the New York Post reported.

The 21-year-old, whose online alias is "Champagne Torino", not only brought 12 glazed doughnuts, "he brought one bagel!" the post said.

That's when Zaydel fired back in ungrammatical English.

Zaydel's post and actions surprised and delighted many on social media.

Zaydel was wanted on several warrants, accused of larceny, trespassing, drunken driving, attempted assault and multiple traffic citations. Donuts! He promised us donuts!

"He promised us donuts!"

'Help us win this challenge and clean up blght (sic) in Redford at the same time! The post was ultimately shared over 4,000 times. And on Monday night, dozens of them chirped approval. For example, he wrote, "You guys suck" under a home invasion post. "Hopefully he is gonna start changing his ways", put in Brandon Taylor of Woodhaven. It's as easy as a SHARE of this post, ' the department added. He is scheduled to stand before a judge at the 17th District Court on October 17.
