LIMA, Ohio — An Ohio man on the run from police sent officers a selfie because he hates his mugshot.

Donald A “Chip” Pugh, 45, is wanted by police in connection with several crimes.

After police shared Pugh’s mugshot on social media, he sent police a new photo with the caption:

“Here is a better photo that one is terrible.”

The Lima Police Department shared the new photo of Pugh and wrote:

“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.”

Pugh was interviewed on a local radio show, where he talked about how much he hates his mugshot.

“Man, they just did me wrong,” Pugh said told Phil Austin and Ryan Staley on 104.9 FM, according to The Lima News. “They put a picture that made me look like I was a Thundercat or something.”

Police said Pugh is continuing to draw attention to himself, which will eventually result in officers locating him.
