The speeding motorcyclist known as "catch me if you can," caught the attention of police last week after he taunted the San Antonio Police Department on their Facebook page. However, police get to have the last laugh after the "catch me if you can" motorcyclist was caught and arrested on Monday, CNN reports.

According to statements from the SAPD, "catch me if you can" a.k.a Alberto Rodriguez, 27, was caught after authorities received a tip of a stolen motorcycle parked at a local residence.

Addressing the apprehension of the "catch me if you can" biker, a post on SAPD's Facebook page read:

"Officers with the SAPD REACT Auto Theft Task Force followed a lead on a stolen motorcycle to a home in the 600 block of Karen Lane. Once there, they encountered Alberto Rodriguez, most recently seen posting a video titled "Catch Me If You Can..." On his Facebook page. The stolen motorcycle was recovered as well. Rodriguez faces his currently outstanding felony warrants, a misdemeanor assault warrant, a possibly charges in connection with the stolen motorcycle."

The video of the "catch me if you can" motorcyclist, which was posted to the SAPD Facebook page, shows the speeding biker carelessly zipping through San Antonio rush hour traffic at speeds more than 100 mph, police say. A camera attached to the reckless biker's helmet captured the terrifying footage.

Regarding the capture of the "catch me if you can" motorcyclist, police Chief William McManus also stated that Rodriguez had three warrants out for his arrest, including evading arrest.

Police dubbed Rodriguez the "catch me if you can" biker after he posted the video taunting police along with the caption "catch me if you can," McManus explained.

Although the brazen motorcyclist known as "catch me if you can" was caught and charged, police do not plan to hold him accountable for the video he posted.

"Rodriguez faces his currently outstanding felony warrants, a misdemeanor assault warrant, and possibly charges in connection with the stolen motorcycle," police said.
