A suspect Ohio wasn't afraid to give his "better side" to authorities.

In a Facebook post made Jan. 6, Lima police said they had an active warrant for the arrest of Donald "Chip" Pugh for failure to appear.

Their post said Pugh is also a person of interest in arson and vandalism cases in the area.

Among the photos police posted was Pugh's general mugshot, which apparently didn't sit well with the man, who sent them a message.

"Here is a better photo that one is terrible," Pugh wrote, sending along a selfie from inside a vehicle. 

Police posted the updated photo, along with a note of their own: "This photo was sent to us by Mr. Pugh himself. We thank him for being helpful, but now we would appreciate it if he would come speak to us at the LPD about his charges."

Tuesday afternoon, Lima police said that Pugh had been captured by authorities in Florida, and is being held on warrants out of Columbus, Georgia.
