Fugitive Sends Police Selfie To Replace His Mugshot
We're not even kidding.
Donald "Chip" Pugh didn't like the mugshot photo that was posted by police in Lima, Ohio, so, he snapped a selfie and sent authorities a picture he approved of.
According to reports, the fugitive who's suspected of arson and vandalism, texted police the picture Monday (January 11) and said "Here is a better photo, that one is terrible." After the brazen move, police posted the new photo to their Facebook page.
"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."
Law enforcement says the 45 year old is a person of interest in several cases and his warrant is for failure to appear on a summons.
Pugh even audaciously dialed into an Ohio radio station to discuss the matter.
"Man, they just did me wrong," Mr Pugh told 104.9 The Eagle. "They put a picture out that made me look like I was a Thundercat, or James Brown on the run. I can't do that."
