Fugitive upset with mugshot sends police selfie that leads to his arrest

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (CNN/WDRB) -- Donald "Chip" Pugh didn't like the mugshot the cops posted of him online.

So he sent them a better one, a selfie with a note that read: "Here is a better photo that one is terrible."

The 45-year-old Pugh was wanted by police in the northwestern Ohio city of Lima because he's accused of failing to appear in court on a DUI charge.

Police said he's also a person of interest in other cases involving vandalism and an arson.

Tuesday morning, Pugh was arrested in Century, Florida, according to a Facebook post from the Escambia County Sheriff's Office.

Lima police thanked their colleagues in their own post.

"Thanks to the power of social media & tips called into authorities, we have learned that Donald Chip Pugh has been arrested by the Escambia County Sheriffs Office in Florida," it read.

In his new mugshot, Pugh is grinning from ear to ear. Police shared the news of his arrest with #ThanksForTheSelfie.
