A man from California handed himself in to police after Googling his name and finding himself on a ‘most wanted’ list.

Christopher Viatafa  handed himself into the cops. He’d battled with guilt and curiosity after spotting his name on a most wanted list on the internet, but only noticed his name on the list when he looked it up on Google.

Viatafa is wanted by the police for a gun-related incident in August 2013. He was shocked to find his name online and then turned himself in to the San Leandro Police Department.

According to police, he “pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and fired a few rounds into the ground near the people”.

He’s now registered as a “captured fugitive” on the website, and will be charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

So, he seems to be a sensible man, despite the raging gun slinger act. At least he’s a good citizen (to a certain extent) – he did hand himself in.
