• Viral Photo Shows Grand Rapids Police Missing Suspect Right In Front Of Them

    A photo of one man’s desperate attempt to hide from police is blowing up the Internet.

    The viral picture appears to show a man hiding on the roof as police search his Grand Rapids, Mich., home.

    The picture, posted four days ago on Imgur by “Richdakilla,” has the caption: “They’ve been looking for him for ten minutes.” It has been viewed nearly 3 million times.

    The Grand Rapids Police Department said the photo appears to show its visit to a home where it made an arrest on July 31 in response to a domestic dispute. Police told Fox 17 News they showed up at the home, and that Edward Martin opened the door but then slammed it in their face.

    A woman then let them in and they began searching for Martin.

    Police reportedly searched the home with no luck before officers outside alerted them of the man on the roof. He was arrested, but his valiant attempt is pictured below.
