An accused organiser of anti-coup flash mobs in Bangkok was finally apprehended Thursday night, but managed to text news of his own arrest before being secured by junta authorities. 

Protest leader Sombat Boonngam-anong announced his own arrest, posting a message late Thursday night on his Facebook account saying simply, "I've been arrested.''
