'Best mug shot ever': Man poses in T-shirt displaying booking photo as he begins DUI jail sentence

Busted in June for drunken driving and driving without a license, a Maine teenager was ready to make a fashion statement by the time he began a two-day jail sentence in August in his driving-under-the-influence case.

For the new booking photo, Robert Burt, 19, was wearing an orange T-shirt featuring an image of the photo taken after his arrest in June, the Smoking Gun reports.

A caption reads “Burt Family Reunion 8/8-8/10/2014,” in an apparent reference to another relative being held at the Somerset County Jail, and “sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff.”

After his release, Burt posted the new booking photo of him wearing the orange T-shirt on his Facebook page, CNET reports.

“Probably the best mug shot ever haha,” he wrote.
