Rhinehart commented on the post saying “Y’all almost had [me] the other day you gotta be quicker than that.” He also commented asking what he would get if he turned himself in.

On Wednesday, police made a post saying Rhinehart jumped into a river to avoid being captured, but was later arrested.

“Mr. Rhinehart thought jumping in the river would evade capture; However, he was wrong and was taken into custody without further incident,” the post said.
