LIMA, Ohio - Police in western Ohio say a man with an arrest warrant told them he didn't like the mugshots they were using, so he sent them a selfie.

Lima police say the gesture followed a department Facebook posting about Donald "Chip" Pugh. Police say the 45-year-old Pugh is wanted for failing to appear in court and is also a person of interest in several other cases, including arson and vandalism.

Police say Pugh sent them a picture of himself in a sport coat and wearing sunglasses along with a message stating, "Here is a better photo that one is terrible."

Police thanked him and said they want to speak with him.

The Lima News reports that Pugh also criticized the photos on a radio show last week.
