VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA (KTVI) — A wanted man is not happy with the way his mug shot looks and is asking police for a new one on Facebook.

The Victoria Police Department in Australia issued a warrant for Daniel Damon and posted his mugshot on its Facebook page.

Damon commented on the post expressing his dissatisfaction with the photo stating, “This is a horrible mugshot” and asked authorities to use a better one.

Victoria Police were quick with response suggesting that he come down to the station where they will arrange for a new one to be taken.


According to Victoria Police, Damon is wanted for failing to answer bail for traffic and drug matters.

Damon stated he will go back to the station when he has things “organized” with his lawyer.


The warrant is still outstanding.
