Michael Zaydel didn't have any way of sweet talking a judge in Redford court, despite delivering a dozen donuts to police when he surrendered Monday.

The wanted man who broke the rules of his probation for DUI and assault charges had spent the night in jail and pled guilty this morning.

He told the judge it was impossible for him to follow court orders, and the judge responded by ordering him to serve 39 days in jail.

If he fails to pay all court costs and fines, he would serve another 30 days. "

You really weren't taking this seriously, which is evidenced by you never appearing," Judge Wirth told Zaydel.

Zaydel had previously told police he would surrender and bring them donuts, if their Facebook post about him was shared more than a thousand times.

The Redford Police ended up more than four thousand of shares and have thanked the community for helping with the case.
