Fugitive Sends Cops A Selfie To Replace His ‘Terrible’ Mugshot
An Ohio man sent police a selfie because he hated his "terrible" mugshot.
45-year-old Donald A. "Chip" Pugh is on the run, wanted by police for multiple crimes including arson. When police shared his mugshot on social media, he didn't turn himself in—he sent them a selfie with the caption:
Here is a better photo that one is terrible.
The Lima Police Department shared the photo on social media, pointing out that Pugh sent them an updated photo—and while they expressed their gratitude, they requested his presence at the station to discuss a few things.
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.
Wait, it gets even better.
Pugh called into a local radio show and vented to Phil Austin and Ryan Staley on 104.9 FM, saying they did him "wrong" by posting a picture that made him look like he "was a Thundercat or something."
The cops appreciate all the attention Pugh is drawing to himself which they believe will inevitably lead to his arrest.
On the bright side, once officers locate him, he'll be able to take a better mugshot.
