You might remember the story of Champagne Torino a.k.a. Michael Zaydel, a wanted man in Michigan who said on Facebook that he'd turn himself in if Redford Police Department's next post got a thousand shares. Well, that post got more than 4,000 shares. And lo and behold, Zaydel kept his word:
Zaydel, who was wanted on "existing warrants", seemed to revel in trolling Redford Police Department's Facebook page, commenting on a post about home invasion saying "You guys suck!" for example.
Exasperated by the constant trolling, police warned him if he continued, he'd be blocked.
The guy sent a private Facebook message challenging them to get more than a thousand shares. "If you're (sic) next post gets a thousand shares I'll turn myself in along with a dozen doughnuts," he wrote. "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."
Not only did Zaydel voluntarily walk into Redford police station, but he also brought doughnuts and a bagel!

It remains to be seen if the judge will be lenient enough to convert any sentencing into picking up litter around public schools.
