The man said "come get me" and Shelby County Sheriff's Office [SCSO] said "ask and you shall receive."

Last week, the SCSO posted photos on their Facebook page of the people they sought with domestic violence warrants. Included was Jonathan Mercer, who was wanted on a range of charges from theft, harassment, DUI, and, of course, domestic assault.

Mercer apparently saw his photo on Facebook and left a comment (as Patrick Mercer): "I'm in North Carolina. Come get me."

Well, they did.

"So we contacted our friends at the Iredell County Sheriff's Office in North Carolina, and asked if they would help us out, and help they did," said a Friday morning status on the SCSO's Facebook page. "Mercer is now in custody in (North Carolina) awaiting extradition back to Tennessee."
