Police 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.
