Motorcyclist Who Taunted Police To “Catch Me If You Can” Gets Caught

833589-08a3eea6-992c-11e3-9a97-2ed07c1403ffPolice have finally arrested the “Catch Me If You Can” motorcyclist who taunted police with the video below showing him dangerously speeding through traffic at more than 100 miles per hour. He is Alberto Rodriguez, 26, who has (surprise) a criminal record and a demonstrated lack of judgment and self-preservation.

Police nailed Rodriguez after following a lead on a stolen motorcycle. What is most striking about the video (beyond the lunacy and endangerment of others) is that Rodriguez has two outstanding felony warrants and a misdemeanor assault warrant outstanding and may now also face charges in connection to the stolen vehicle.

He allegedly took the film on a helmet-cam video in May 2013 and posted it on Facebook. It showed him serving through Interstate 35.

It will be interesting to see how the taunting will play into sentencing since he is not only a fugitive but taunted police while putting others at risk. That would seem an uber aggravator for sentencing.

  1. Reminds me of kids that smoke, to try to be “cool”….obviously they somehow think people will think they are something special for showing their stupidity in public.

  2. Considering those other vehicles are traveling at interstate speeds, I am curious as to just how fast he was going.

    Emergency room staff and EMTs have a name for people like this: “Organ donors.”

  4. All it would take is a quick lane change by a car and he would have been Road Pizza (thin crust).

    Personally, I don’t find it striking he had a felony warrant out on him when he made this video. I Expect he would have a warrant. Guys who do stupid stuff like this usually have warrants or suspended licenses.

  5. Some people get an adrenalin rush out of these kind of antics. I personally had my heart in my hand as he whizzed through traffic (some very narrow spots between semis and cars). He was willing to die and take others with him in the process; defying the law and all people’s liberties.
    These people have deep seeded anger and bitterness. They don’t consider others, only their own selfish desires. In one instance, I can’t help but pity him for his psychological maladjustment. However, my main concern is for those whom he puts in jeopardy for his own agenda .

  6. Ya wanna get caught… Post it on your Facebook page….. Should go down as one of the stupidest criminal acts….

  7. Looks as if he took down the YouTube video of his antics he posted on his Facebook page. This being the Internet age, naturally many copies had been downloaded before his video was taken down. Therefore, in the public interest, here is the video with some commentary by local TV news.
