Pic of the Day: Kid Flicks Off Camera for Mugshot (Updated)

Posted By on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 11:05 AM

Update: Mitchell Peterman realizes the cold truth of the web: a funny mug shot never fades. From today's Akron Beacon Journal:

“I haven’t even seen them. I don’t even want to look at them,” Peterman said. “It’s something I wish I wouldn’t have done, something I wish I could undo. So, I’m just going to try and distance myself from it, learn from it and leave it behind.”

Country relocation. Name change. Facial reconstruction. All of the above. — Swenson


This feisty 18-year-old was arrested for underage consumption at 2:49 a.m. Sunday by the Bath police.

The kid was not amused.

You can't see, but according to the Bath PD Facebook page, he not only flicked off the camera, but grabbed his crotch at the same time.
