The fight is on between San Antonio police and a motorcycle rider who posted a video on Facebook that shows him zooming through interstate traffic at speeds up to 160 kph with a message: “Catch me if you can.”
The police, who are calling the biker a high-priority suspect, have posted clips on their own Facebook site showing him weaving in and out among cars on a busy San Antonio highway. (Story continued below video)

“When we catch him, he has a lot more to answer to, but we want to get him off the street,” said police spokesman, Sergeant Javier Salazar.
Salazar says police believe the cyclist, based on the Facebook page where the video was originally posted, is a man facing two felony warrants and a misdemeanor warrant for family violence.
The video, apparently taken by a helmet-mounted camera, shows the motorcyclist on Interstate 35, zipping close to oncoming cars and nearly side-swiping others.
In Texas, motorcycle riders must remain in the lanes of traffic and are not allowed to drive down the center stripe of the highway.
Police Chief William McManus says the motorcyclist is believed to be Alberto Rodriguez, 27. It’s unclear when the video was taken, but he posted it on his page and someone later reposted it on the Police Department’s page.
In addition to the motorcycle incident, police said Rodriguez is wanted on two outstanding felony warrants and one misdemeanor for family violence, CNN affiliate KSAT reported.
