If you don’t like your mug shot, here’s a surefire way to get it redone.
Georgia woman Tonya Fowler was so upset when she saw her terrible mug shot in a local broadsheet, she dialed 911 to report her displeasure, according to Barrow County News.
Cops said Fowler, of Commerce, called in the emergency on Sunday when her face appeared in the Bad & Busted mug shot paper for a previous arrest, according to police reports obtained by The Smoking Gun.
“Ms. Fowler contacted 911 earlier today in reference to being upset about a picture,” an officer stated in the report. “I informed Ms. Fowler to contact 911 for emergencies, injuries or violence.”
While the quality of her picture may have been obscene, messing with 911 operators is a real crime. She was arrested again, charged with unlawful use of the emergency service, and given a new mugshot (seen above).
But it wasn’t the only time she’d called 911 operators that day. Before the mug shot flop, she called to report that she needed a place to keep her sleeping bags, The Smoking Gun reported. Apparently, the residents of a random house in Commerce wouldn’t let Fowler keep her sleeping bags in their home.
