(BlackMediaScoop) A Texas woman wanted for an outstanding warrant went to Twitter and dared cops to come and get her, and police called her bluff.
Pearland police say it was downright bold. A wanted woman is accused of going on Twitter, calling police names and declaring she’d never be caught. So authorities took it as a challenge and put in extra work to track her down.
In 140 characters or less you can say pretty much whatever you want on Twitter. “It doesn’t matter where you post things, it’s always going to be found,” said resident Doug Klupch.
But apparently that was not a concern for Mahogany Mason-Kelly. Last week the college student, who’s had a few run-ins with Pearland police, posted, “I still gotta warrant in pearland..those pigs will NEVER catch me!!!…NEVER!!!”
But she may have gotten away with it if those officers she was talking about had not logged on to Twitter. Lt. Onesimo Lopez of the Pearland Police Department said, “Some of the regular patrol officers found that Twitter page. They found that tweet about Pearland not being able to find her and it was kind of offensive.”
