Biker bypasses San Antonio rush-hour traffic at 100+mph

SAN ANTONIO (CNN/KSAT) — A disturbing video caught the attention of the San Antonio Police Department.

They are trying to find a man who rode his motorcycle speeding through traffic – and then posted a video of it on Facebook.

“He had a helmet cam on strapped to his helmet and was driving his motorcycle between traffic at a high rate of speed,” said San Antonio Police Sgt. Javier Salazar. “I would estimate it to be in an excess of 100 mph.”

San Antonio police need your help in catching this motorcyclist.

This was video was posted on their Facebook page, with the caption that says, in part, “Catch me if you can.”

That video has since been shared more than 10,000 times.

Sgt. Javier Salazar is concerned that if this person is not caught soon, this reckless behavior will continue and someone will get seriously injured.

“Really, all it would have taken was a split second for him to impact the lives of several people — possibly killing someone by his very actions,” said Salazar.

What makes this video so disturbing: It was in broad daylight in what appears to be rush-hour traffic on Interstate 35 North.

After further investigation of this motorcyclist’s Facebook page, they think he could be 26-year-old Albert Rodriguez — a man currently wanted by police because he has two outstanding felony warrants and one misdemeanor warrant for family violence.

“At this point, he’s got the charges of what he’s wanted for — which is evading arrest, retaliation and the family violence warrant,” said Salazar. “And additionally — if this is him to be found in this video — he’s going to be looking at additional charges.”

Police believe he is still in the area. As quickly as social media spread this dramatic video, they’re hoping this reckless motorcyclist will be off the streets just as fast.

“Well, it just goes to show that you call negative attention to yourself on your social media Web pages , bad things can happen,” said Salazar.
