A selfie-sending fugitive has been apprehended in Florida after his mugshots became a social media sensation. 

Donald Pugh, 45, was wanted on warrants out of Ohio related to DUI charges. When his mugshot was posted by the media, Pugh apparently became upset with the image and decided to send police a “better photo.”

The “better photo” came in the form of a selfie showing Pugh wearing sunglasses and a sports coat. The photo, and Pugh’s apparent interest in his own image, went viral on social media.

Police received multiple tips and ultimately tracked Pugh down at a library in Century, FL.
