REDFORD, MI – A wanted Michigan man challenged the Redford Police Department on Facebook saying he would turn himself in if the department were to get 1,000 shares on its next post.
It all started on Friday after Champagne Torino, real name Michael Martin Zaydel, wrote, “you guys suck”, on Redford Township Police Department’s page.
Torino got a quick response from the police force, which read: “Michael, given your veiled threats to residents and officers on other threads, and your inability to engage in constructive dialogue on this page, this is your one warning. If it continues you will be blocked.”
Torino wasn’t phased. He fired back: “Yeah I’m not worried about it. If youre next post gets a thousand shares I’ll turn myself in along with a dozen doughnuts. 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.”
The challenge was accepted by the Redford Police Department. After making Torino’s message public, the department received the 1,000 shares in just over an hour.
Despite losing the bet Torino who on Facebook describes his occupation as ‘head savage’ for a manufacturing firm, has yet to come in – with or without doughnuts.
The police say they’re confident of catching him, though. And today efforts were stepped up. We even know his real name, now.
