Maine man shows up for jail in T-shirt bearing his mug shot

Continue reading below

A Maine man who served a 48-hour sentence for drunken driving wore something special for his jail booking photo: a T-shirt featuring his mug shot. Nineteen-year-old Bobby Burt of Pittsfield had the mug shot from his June arrest printed on the orange shirt, along with the words, ‘‘Sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff.’’ The mug shot is making the rounds online thanks to The Smoking Gun website, which posted it Monday. Sean Maguire, the jail’s compliance manager, said there’s no policy on what a person can wear for a booking photo. Burt, who’s also using the mug shot for his Facebook profile picture, didn’t immediately return a call left at his place of employment Tuesday. (AP)
