Police have photos of him, but he reportedly sent a new one showing him in a suit and sunglasses at the wheel of a car. The caption reads, “Here is a better photo that one is terrible.”

“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,” the police department wrote on Facebook.
