Man Turns Himself In After Google Search Tells Him He's Wanted

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene.

Recently Christopher Viatafa did something many of us have done: He Googled his own name. But what he found wasn't so normal. It was his own face, on Northern California's Most Wanted website. He allegedly pulled a gun at a party last summer and fired it into the ground. In what authorities are calling an act of good judgment after a very bad call, Viatafa turned himself in. He's been charged with assault with a deadly weapon. He's now listed as a captured fugitive.

It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
