The police in Swansea, Wales recently put 35-year-old Wayne Esmonde’s mugshot on their Facebook page because he had a warrant out for assault.
Wayne replied to the Facebook post last week, “I am him. Not a very flattering mugshot. I’d appreciate it if you take this post down. Innocent until proven guilty and all that.”
And he eventually reached a deal with the cops: If he turned himself in, they’d take down the photo. So he went to the station, the cops arrested him, and they took down the mugshot.
But unfortunately for Wayne, now that his story is out, that mugshot is all over the Internet and getting infinitely more attention than it was getting before. LOL.
