Wonders will never cease!
A wanted man in Ohio, US was unhappy with the mugshot being used by the authorities on Facebook that he decided to send them a better-looking photo for them to use.
The 45-year-old fugitive, who goes by the name Donald A ‘Chip’ Pugh and has an active arrest warrant for failure to appear in court, sent the Lima Police Department a selfie of him with a caption that read:
‘Here is a better photo that one is terrible.’
Police shared the selfie showing Pugh donning a suit coat, shirt and sunglasses and wrote in a caption thanking him for being helpful but said they would appreciate if he came to speak to them.
This is what the police department wrote in a Facebook post regarding the man:
This photo was sent to us by Mr. Pugh himself. We thank him for being helpful, but now we would appreciate it if he would come speak to us at the LPD about his charges.
In addition to the arrest warrant for failure to appear in court, Pugh is also a person of interest in several other cases including arson and vandalism.
The wanted man appeared on a radio segment and told hosts the picture was ‘awful.’
Man I think they just did me wrong, man. They put a picture out that had me looking like I was a Thundercat or somebody, man or James Brown on the run. I can’t do it.
He continued; “Let me tell you the story behind that mug shot. When I got arrested I had never been arrested on a misdemeanor. So I went in there and I was happy, I was smiling. When the officers booked me in they were like “why are you smiling?” And I’m like ’cause I’m gonna walk out of jail in a minute, I’m so happy. So I refused to take a mean mug shot.”
He told the radio show’s hosts he is wanted by police after getting a DUI and failing to appear in court.
