Michael Zaydel was a fugitive.  The 21-year old man was a wanted man for violating the conditions of his probation relating to a DUI charge.  So the Redford Township, Michigan police department took to social media, like many do, in posting a picture of Michael and asking for the public to help locate him. It was no surprise that one of the people to see his mugshot was Michael himself and like many wanted men and women thought he'd taunt police with a challenge.  He sent the police department a message stating that if his wanted Facebook post was shared a thousand times he'd gladly turn himself in, along with a dozen doughnuts and the promise of picking up litter at all the public schools. 

The police department gladly took up the challenge by posting Michael's message on encouraging the public to share it.  Within a few hours the post eclipsed one thousand shares to over 4,400 and true to his word, Michael appeared at the Redford Township police department lobby with one dozen doughnuts and a bagel.  As he ate his bagel, police arrested Michael.  As to why Michael brought the doughnuts?  He told a local reporter that "cops like doughnuts," and he wanted to reward them for any inconvenience. The police department refused comment if they ate the doughnut offering.
