Man Sends Police A Selfie To Use In Place Of His 'Terrible' Mugshot

Pick your battles, poor man's Carlton Banks. Pick your battles.

Donald 'Chip' Pugh didn't like it when the Lima Police Department posted a picture of him on its Facebook page.

Not because it would potentially lead to him being recaptured and sent to prison, but rather because it just wasn't that good of a picture.

I mean, unless you consider crack'd out Carlton Banks a good look.

In that case, this is a GREAT picture.

If there is one thing I know from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” it's Carlton literally has no impulse control, and that's confirmed by this bizzare real-life version of Uncle Phil's kid, who sent the police department a private message with a better picture to use the next time police try and capture him.

Pugh captioned the picture saying, “Here is a better photo that one is terrible.”

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. Posted by Lima Police Department on Wednesday, January 6, 2016

The LPD shared Chip's selfie, gaining the attention of all those who follow the Lima Police Department's page on Facebook. DON'T ACT LIKE YOU DON'T!

He is allegedly wanted for several cases including incidents involving vandalism and arson.

Chip claims he is innocent, though, reportedly saying in a recent interview with 104.9 The Eagle,

Man, they just did me wrong. 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.

Thundercats are definitely a "no" with Pugh, who is apparently still on the run from the law.
