Just because you’re on the run from police doesn’t mean you don’t want to look good.

Wanted man Donald Pugh recently sent Ohio police a selfie to replace the “terrible” mugshot the authorities have been circulating of him.

Pugh is in legal hot water, but instead of turning himself in, the 45-year-old sent the Lima Police Department a new picture to use in his pursuit.

“Here is a better photo that one is terrible,” was the message Pugh sent along with the photo.

The police department posted the photo, showing Pugh sitting in a vehicle in a suit and wearing shades, to its Facebook page.

“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.”

There is an active warrant for Pugh’s arrest for Failure to Appear, and he is also a person of interest in “Several other cases, including an arson and vandalism,” according to authorities.

Anyone who knows of Pugh’s whereabouts is asked to contact authorities.
