A Michigan man’s plans seemingly backfired when the police department that had already served him a warrant responded to his Facebook challenge.
“If you’re [sic] next post gets a thousand shares I’ll turn myself in along with a dozen doughnuts,” Champagne Torino wrote to the Redford Township Police Department on Facebook, according to WTVD. Torino added that he’d “pick up every piece of litter around all your public schools.”
Police accepted and shared his challenge. WJBK reported that it took only an hour for the post to be shared over a thousand times, and it has been shared almost 4,000 times at the time of this writing.
The department wrote that it hoped Torino would keep his word and himself in.
