HOUSTON – One of the pranksters who played basketball in the middle of a busy Houston road near an interstate entrance isn’t laughing now.

Houston Police arrested Roland Zepeda on outstanding warrants in Fort Bend County.  In an Instagram video of the arrest, Zepeda says he considered turning himself in after being on the run for two years.

“I would have turned myself in long time ago, but I have multiple warrants this year, so I didn’t do it,” Zepeda tells an officer in the video.

The arrest video already has more than 12,000 views and it’s no prank.

This comes just weeks after the video of Zepeda and his partner in crime Edward Gonzales playing literal street ball went viral.

Earlier this month, they were both charged with obstruction of a highway, but the cops hadn’t caught up to them yet.
