In Redford Township, Michigan, a wanted man posted negative messages on the police department’s Facebook page. The police threatened to ban him from the page. But, the next post from him said if the police department got 1,000 shares with their next post, he would turn himself in (he had probation violations) and bring donuts. The next post by the police department got around 4,200 shares, and the man showed up at the police station with a bag of donuts and a bagel. He told TV station WXYZ, “cops like doughnuts,” and he wanted to reward them for any inconvenience.

When the judge learned that, he gave the man the maximum fine of $20,000, plus court costs. About half the discovered cash was ordered to go to his attorney, who’d been shorted on his fees.
