One surefire way to get arrested if you’re on a wanted list is to call the police yourself…..and ask them to use a better photo for your mugshot.

Ohio Police say a woman was so upset by the unflattering photo detectives posted to Facebook that she called them and demanded that it be removed, leading to her arrest.
“This is a first for us,” Denise Alex-Bouzounis, public information officer with the Columbus Police Department, told The Huffington Post. “She really didn’t want her face out there for everyone to see.”
According to Alex-Bouzounis, she posted 34-year-old Monica Hargrove’s mug shot to the department’s Facebook page on Sept. 10, as part of a weekly roundup called “Warrant Wednesday.”
The Facebook post, which garnered 64 shares and some 54 thousand pages views, did not go unnoticed by Hargrove.
Police say the woman was so upset by the mug shot photo, which she considered unflattering, that she called within 48 hours of the post.
“She contacted the detective listed on the Facebook post and said, ‘Hey, I want my picture down,'” Alex-Bouzounis said. “[The detective] said, ‘Come on in and we’ll talk about it.'”
And, police say, that is exactly what Hargrove did. “She came in and he put her under arrest,” said Alex-Bouzounis.
This lady sounds like a real genius.
