Wanted Man sends Selfie to cops to replace ‘terrible’ mugshot of him


A man wanted by police in Ohio sent authorities a selfie because he was unhappy with the mugshot being circulated on his arrest warrant. 
Donald “Chip” Pugh was wanted for a failure to appear in several cases including arson and vandalism, according to Lima Police Department.

In a post on its Facebook page, Lima Police urged people to contact them if they spotted Pugh with an unflattering mugshot of the 45-year-old. Pugh sent an image of him sitting in a car wearing sunglasses, along with the comment: “Here is a better photo that one is terrible.”

The fugitive even carried out an interview with Ohio radio station The Eagle, in which he claimed Lima Police “just did me wrong”. He said: “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.”

Lima Police responded to the photo, adding: “We thank (Pugh) for being helpful, but now we would appreciate it if he would come speak to us at the (police station) about his charges”.So far Pugh has not been caught.
