LOL! Wanted Man promises to surrender if Police gets 1,000 FB shares & he kept his word

A man wanted by the police for committing a crime dared police officers to get 1,000 Facebook shares and he would turn himself in.

The 21-year-old Michigan man, Michael Zydel, was wanted for violating the terms of his probation. He promised to turn himself in and also bring police some donuts if they could get at least 1,000 shares on a Facebook post.

His funny challenge went viral and once police got 1,000 shares, he reported himself to police.

Michael broke the rules of his probation for DUI and assault charges, police department in the Redford Township post an appeal to Facebook asking people to assist them in locating him.

Michael, who goes by “Champagne Torino” on Facebook, replied the post, challenging police to get at least 1,000 shares on their next post if they wanted him to turn himself in.

“I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise. And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.”

That was too good an offer to pass up, so the Redford PD again asked people to help them complete the challenge. Judging by their post, the promised donuts were just the incentive they needed.

“Donuts!!!! He promised us donuts! You know how much we love Donuts!” the police wrote on FB.

On Monday, October 6, the wanted man showed up at Redford PD headquarters with a bag of donuts in hand, prompting the department to write “Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in.

Despite staying true to his word, Michael Zydel still had to pay the price for breaking probation.

A judge recently sentenced him to 39 days in jail, a sentenced that could be extended if he fails to pay all court costs and fines.
