Alabama police found themselves being taunted by a suspect after officials at the department published a wanted poster to its Facebook page. Roderick Hill, the suspect in question, responded to the poster and mocked the relatively mild charge the Linden Police Department are seeking him over, Mashable reports.
The zany situation all began on Sunday after police posted that they were searching for 31-year-old Roderick Hill on charges of Attempting to Elude and was considered armed and dangerous. Taking umbrage with the accusation, Hill found it fitting to defend his good name not with legal representation but with a Facebook reply.
“Wtf??man y’all doing too much…it’s murderers out here and y’all worried bout lil ol me?wow…sad,” wrote Hill. Hill’s appearance on the posting prompted readers to chime in as well, with one user asking for deeper details.
“I ran from them…I’ve never been caught or charged with a gun never robbed. [S]o how is it fair to label me armed over a traffice offence,” Hill answered.
Hill appears to still be on the lam and has a rap sheet in Mobile County of mostly non-violent offenses. Hopefully, Hill’s legal ordeal will end on on a just and peaceful note.
