Wanted man taunts Michigan police department on Facebook

A man who calls himself Champagne Torino on Facebook has been taunting the police department of Redford, Michigan

A man wanted on 'existing warrants' taunted a Michigan police department on Facebook by offering to turn himself in if their next post received 1,000 shares.

The next post from the Redford Police Department, posted on Friday evening, did indeed receive more than 1,000 shares. The culprit, called Champagne Torino on Facebook, has not turned himself in as of Sunday, the Detroit News reports.

The dispute between Torino and the Redford Police Department began on Friday.
The police department posted about a home invasion. Torino posted a comment: 'You guys suck!'
It appears that this is not the first time Torino has posted cruelly about the police department.
Its reply 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.'

The dispute began on Friday after Torino commented on a press release about a home invasion saying: 'You guys suck!'

Torino sent the department a private Facebook message promising to turn himself in on his 'existing warrants' and to bring doughnuts if the department's next post was to receive 1,000 shares

Later that evening, Torino sent a private message to the department.

Screenshots posted by the department show that he wrote: 'If you're (sic) next post gets a thousand shares I'll turn myself in along with a dozen doughnuts. And that's a promise.'

The following post from the department read: 'CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!' and it outlined the situation. The Friday post read: 'As you can see below, if we can have this post SHARED 1000 times, he will turn himself in to RTPD on his existing warrants, clean up blight on public school property, and bring us a dozen donuts. Donuts!!!! He promised us donuts! You know how much we love Donuts!'
The post has received nearly 4,000 shares as of Sunday. It reached 1,000 shares in a bit over an hour on Friday evening.
In a follow up post, the department wrote: 'It is amazing the support we get from the community. 

After the police department's post received more than 1,000 shares, it posted a bitmoji of a police officer doing a mic drop
As of Sunday, Torino had not turned himself in. The police department wrote: 'He may or may not be a man of his word'

'Mr. "Torino" gave us a challenge. That challenge was accepted. He may or may not be a man of his word. It is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. 
'He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality. The important thing to be seen here is the support of the community, and the desire to help.
'Our jobs would be next to impossible without that partnership. 1000 shares in just over an hour!'
