Fugitive Urges Police to Use His Selfie Instead of Mugshot

When Ohio police could not find Donald Pugh, they posted unflattering photos of him on Facebook to help with their search. Pugh was wanted for drunk driving and failing to appear in court.

Donald "Chip" Pugh noticed his picture on the Lima Department's Facebook page. So, he sent them a selfie he took with the message "Here is a better photo that one is terrible."

Since then, the 45-year-old was arrested in Escambia County in Western Florida. He also made it a point to smile in his mugshot. In addition, Pugh is a person of interest in other cases, including arson and vandalism. Pugh is also being held for warrants out of Columbus, Georgia.

After he sent his selfie, the police thanked him for being "helpful" and said they would appreciate it if he spoke to them about his charges.
