A man wanted in connection with a July 18th assault in Wales has surrendered after Police posted his mugshot on social media which he thought was ugly.
The image of 35-year-old Wayne Esmonde was posted on the South Wales Police Facebook page last week Wednesday. Esmonde who was on the run then, found time to comment on the page, pleading for the image to be pulled down.
He wrote on the police force’s Facebook page: “I am him. Not a very flattering mugshot,” I’d appreciate it if you’d take this post down. Innocent until proven guilty and all that.”
“I’ve spoken to my solicitor and they will advise me what to do next. Thanks,” Esmonde added.
After his attorney told him to hand himself over to police, Esmonde surrendered himself to the Swansea Central police station.
By Friday, it appeared that the authorities stayed true to their word by taking down his unflattering mugshot.
