A man wanted by the Australian police commented on a Facebook post, urging them to take off his 'horrible' mugshot and have it replaced with a better picture. He is still at large.
The incident took place on Monday, 6 June, after Victoria Police posted a look-out circular seeking information from the public on 25-year-old Daniel Damon against whom a local court had issued an arrest warrant for traffic and drug-related offences.
Soon the Victoria Police's Facebook page had a surprise visitor - Damon himself. "Can you use a better photo tho [though]. This is a horrible mugshot," the wanted man posted.
In its reply, the Victoria Police said: "visit your nearest police station and we'll arrange for a new photo to be taken". To this Damon said: "Yea I plan on it once I get a few things in order..just gotta organise myself a lawyer and get everything organised (sic)."
The Facebook post, which now has been deleted, saw several social media users either praising the wanted man or urging the authorities to quickly arrested him.
A social media user rather sarcastically said: "Yes think you may need that sense of humour where your going Danny boy."
"This bloke is too arrogant for his own good," said another.
A BBC report, citing the police warrant, describes Damon as 180cm tall (5ft 11in), medium build, with brown hair and eyes. The police also said the wanted man has a number of body tattoos.
Senior Constable Melissa Seach told BBC News that the police was still hopeful that somebody on Facebook would be able to give information on his whereabouts.
