We've all had that feeling where a silly looking photo from our past comes back to haunt us.
Few of us however have had that photo come back to haunt us when it's being used in a police investigation to find us.
Donald "Chip" Pugh from Ohio in the United States is being sought after by police in connection with crimes including arson and vandalism. Last week the local police department shared mugshots of Pugh on Facebook in an attempt to get he public to help find him.
Later they added a third photo. A selfie which Pugh sent to the police himself because he didn't like the mugshot pictures.
“This photo was sent to us by Mr. Pugh himself,” the police wrote. “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.”
Pugh later called into a local radio show and explained why he sent the selfie to the police.
“I started having fun with it,” he said. “I became a hometown hero. I can’t help but run with it. I did it for my idiot friends.” He said he decided to send the selfie because the police “did me wrong.”
“They put a picture that made me look like I was a Thundercat or something,” he said.
Pugh is still on the run, and the Lima News reported he has no plans to turn himself in.
“When I was a little kid, my grandmother told me a bedtime story,” he said. “My hero was this character, who used to say, ‘Run, run, fast as you can. You can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.’”
The gingerbread man indeed. While we don't condone his actions in avoiding the authorities, we have to admit sending in that selfie was a pretty baller move.
