A 16-year-old fugitive believed to have posted a "Catch me if you can" message on his MySpace Web page was captured Friday, three days after his escape from a detention center, an official said.
Jordan Danski escaped Tuesday with two other teenagers from the Macomb County Juvenile Justice Center where he was being held on a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon, police said. The others were quickly caught, but Danski eluded capture.
Authorities said they believe Danski posted the boast, "Catch me if you can" as the heading of his MySpace page Wednesday. Another message said "2 fast for the feds to cocky for the cops."
News Corp.'s MySpace is a popular, social-networking Web site.
"What a smart aleck," Danski's grandmother and guardian, Betty Danski, told the Detroit Free Press. "At least I know he's probably safe."
Danski's page also drew comments from supporters. The messages included "run jordan run" and "haha keep runnin man, dont let them ... catch you," The Detroit News reported.
Macomb County authorities captured Danski on Friday, said county spokesman Phil Frame. It wasn't immediately clear how he was caught.
