The reckless motorcyclist known as the "catch me if you can" guy was finally arrested Monday afternoon.
Friends of Alberto Rodriguez, 26, had little to say after his arrest at their Northeast Side home. Rodriguez was discovered hiding in the back of the house after undercover detectives tracked this stolen motorcycle to the home.
"When they pulled up on the house, our man ran out the back door and was hiding behind an air conditioning unit. They chased him and apprehended him there," said San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.
When detectives brought him out, Rodriguez had his head down and hid his face with his hooded sweatshirt.
Officers say this is the same man who posted a video of himself recklessly weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed while riding a motorcycle on Interstate 35.
Part of the caption posted with the video was "catch me if you can" and it shows him driving between traffic at a speed of 100 miles per hour. The video has since been shared more than 10,000 times.
A neighbor, who wanted to remain nameless for fear of his safety, said he’s relieved Rodriguez has been caught. He said his wife drives that direction to work every day.
"She's saying that could have been me there, you know what I'm saying, he could have caused a major accident, anything like that," said McManus. "It just goes to show you, catch me if you can, well our detectives caught him."
Rodriguez was wanted on three outstanding warrants: evading arrest, assault and bodily injury, and retaliation. Police have also tacked on theft of a motorcycle. Other charges are still pending.
