Another memorable police mugshot is making the rounds: This time, it's a 21-year-old Ohio man named Andrew Marcum, who looks pretty emotional as he's getting booked. However he gets no sympathy from Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones, who posted a taunting tweet that asks, "Is it raining or is he teared up. Tough guys sometime(s) sensitive." The tweet followed a strange social media exchange between Marcum and the sheriff's office.

Earlier in the week, the office posted photos of Marcum, who was wanted on charges of safe-cracking, abduction, assault, and domestic violence, reports Fox8.com. Marcum himself then commented on the post, writing, “I ain’t tripping half of them don’t even know me.” To which the office replied, "If you could stop by the Sheriff’s Office, that’d be great." The back-and-forth drew lots of attention, and the sheriff's office says it finally caught Marcum after tipsters came forward to reveal his whereabouts, reports Cincinnati.com. (His mugshot doesn't surpass this one in strangeness, however.)
