When deciding what to use for an online profile pic, using your wanted poster may not be the best option.
Mack Yearwood, 42, did just that, and found himself quickly in hot water. He had a number of outstanding warrants out for his arrest and used his “Wanted of the Week” poster as his new Facebook profile pic. Really? Common sense never seems to prevail with criminals!
Police used the profile pic to help identify him in another reported disturbance, as well. Yearwood was quickly located and arrested on two warrants, but wait… it gets better.
He asked to put on a pair of jeans that were lying next to his bed when a bag of marijuana fell out of the pocket.
A charge of possession of cannabis under 20 grams was added for his arrest. It is unknown why he was so excited to use his wanted poster as his Facebook profile picture, because it sure ended up getting him into more trouble than it was worth!
