This week Dunedin police made a plea on their Facebook page wanting to locate Andrew Waru-Te Hauora on a warrant to arrest.
He was described as being aged 24, 183cm tall and of medium build.
However the attached mugshot was slammed by the man in a Facebook post several hours later.
"aw cmon its not a very flattering photo, at least can i use my display picture?''
His plea prompted a flood of comments with Facebookusers clearly finding the request highly amusing.
He then later posted "voluntary appearance tomorw OK! i was sick on ourt date sorry sir gotta note, so can we uss this picture?''.
