Man Shows up for Jail in T-Shirt With Mug Shot

MADISON, Maine (AP) _ A man reporting for a 48-hour jail sentence in Maine put some thought into his attire, wearing an orange T-shirt with his mug shot on it.

Robert Edward Burt of Pittsfield was arrested on a charge of operating under the influence in June and bailed out. He was later sentenced to 48 hours in jail.

WMTW-TV reports the 19-year-old Burt showed up at the Somerset County Jail on Aug. 8, wearing a T-shirt with a picture of his mug shot from his arrest. Then he had his new mug shot taken, which featured the old photo.

Burt was released on Aug. 10.
