Ohio man, Andrew Dale Marcum, apparently thought it was a good idea to comment on his own wanted poster on the Butler County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page. All did not end well for Andrew Marcum – not by a long shot. The 21-year-old was soon arrested and photographed in tears in a mugshot by Hamilton law enforcement officers.
Earlier this week the Butler County Sheriff’s office posted the Andrew Marcum wanted poster online, complete with photos and details about his outstanding warrants. Just a few hours after being highlighted at the Butler County “Warrant of the Week” Marcum commented post shared by the sheriff’s deputies who were searching for him in the Ohio region.
“I ain’t tripping half of them don’t even know me,” Andrew Dale Marcum commented beneath the Facebook wanted poster. It remains unclear what the wanted man’s phrase meant.
The Butler County Sheriff’s Office responded to Marcum’s comment by saying, “Andrew Marcum- If you could stop by the Sheriff’s Office, that’d be great.” The now viral Facebook wanted poster enticed hundreds of other people to also comment on the exchange, including members of the nearby Hamilton County Police Association.
