Mr. “Catch Me If You Can” was caught by police in San Antonio, Texas Monday. Alberto Rodriguez had taunted police with a video he posted showing his reckless motorcycle driving through traffic at high speeds. He dared them to catch him, and they made it happen. Fox News shared the details on Feb. 18.
Rodriguez was wearing a helmet camera as he drove a motorcycle at speeds of up to 100 mph darting through traffic. The video, originally posted in May 2013, went viral and it clearly took a while before the man who taunted authorities to “catch me if you can” was caught. After the video was shared about 10,000 times, someone posted the video on the page of the San Antonio police. They made the connection to Rodriguez, and it happens that he had several warrants already outstanding.
The “Catch Me If You Can” driver caught by the police faces a reckless driving charge, and there may be charges related to a motorcycle theft. Authorities indicate there may well be other charges brought forth as well. Alberto Rodriguez also had two felony warrants and one misdemeanor warrant already in place at the time of his arrest regarding the reckless driving. He is said to be in jail, unable to post bond at this time.
