Whoops! Surf City Riot Suspect Arrested After 'Liking' His Own Photo On Police Facebook Page

Police arrested Luis Enrique Rodriguez after his friend tagged him and he "liked" this photo put out by the Huntington Beach Police Department (Facebook)

It turned out to be pretty easy to track down some of the suspects in last month's riots in Huntington Beach: some couldn't resist bragging about what happened after the U.S. Open of Surfing.

One suspect in particular made it really easy. Last week the Huntington Beach Police Department posted photos of 25 suspects on Facebook and asked for the public's help identifying them. Two days after the photos were posted, a friend of Luis Enrique Rodriguez, 18, of Anaheim tagged him in the comments of the photo above. Rodriguez responded by liking the post and sharing it on Facebook. Police say that made it pretty easy to track him down.

Yesterday the Anaheim Police Department arrested Rodriguez who is being charged with vandalism, according to Huntington Beach PD's Facebook page. He's accused of writing "frack the pigs" on police squad cars that responded to the scene of the riot. There's another photo of him on his Facebook profile that features him sitting on top of a squad car that same day—or at least in the same clothes. (Eds. note: a previous post included the a photo that was not Rodriguez but we've swapped in the correct one at right.)

Rodriguez wasn't the only one who couldn't resist sharing his exploits on social media. West Covina resident Niko Johnson, 18, bragged on Twitter about being Huntington Beach's Most Wanted and was later arrested for participating in the riots.

In the days since posting the pictures, Huntington Beach police arrested two other suspects. On August 11, they arrested Anthony Abadier, 20, of Huntington Beach at his home. He's accused of using his skateboard to smash up newspaper stands. On August 11, an unnamed 17-year-old from West Covina turned himself in after detectives contacted his family. He's accused of damaging porta-potties and attempting to tip over a public works truck.

Someone tell me, are young people seriously this stupid? You see it time and time again.

You guys are seriously calling this teen stupid/an idiot?! He was accused of spraying FPT on a cop car. Absolutely nowhere in the album posted by the police department is there an picture of this man vandalizing. In fact, that picture of him simply being there just states he's a suspect.

You guys should stop believing everything the media tells you and really think/do research for yourself.

The media saw this as a story because a suspect used the picture posted of him as his profile picture. People like you ^^^ just eat it up.
