Man responds to Ohio PD’s Facebook post seeking his arrest: ‘Be quicker’
“Ya’ll almost had (me) the other day. You gotta be quicker than that,” the suspect wrote from his own Facebook account

NEWARK, Ohio — Police departments often use social media to post photos of wanted suspects. The suspects don’t often respond, however.
But 20-year-old Tanner Rhinehart, who is wanted on “multiple warrants,” decided to chime in when he saw his photo on the Newark Division of Police’s Facebook page on Monday.
“Ya’ll almost had (me) the other day you gotta be quicker than that,” Rhinehart wrote under the photo from his own Facebook account.
He later commented again, asking “What willll (sic) I get if I turn myself in(?)”
Rhinehart’s taunting of the police department brought multiple reactions on the page, with more than 300 comments ... some finding his response funny and cheering him on, while others took it more seriously, urging him to turn himself in to police.
According to WCMH Channel 4, Rhinehart is wanted after he failed to appear at his sentencing hearing for a probation violation. WCMH reports he has a record of other charges and pleaded guilty in January 2022 to felony theft in Licking County.
