Friday's HOT MIC

We're only 17 years in, but we may have already found the ultimate 21st Century crime story.

Vain fugitive turns himself in after spotting ‘unflattering’ mugshot on Facebook.

You read that right.

A South Wales man wanted for an alleged assault spotted his mugshot on the local police’s Facebook page and deemed it so unflattering he wanted it taken down. He turned himself in Thursday and got his wish.

Wayne Esmonde, 35, had his face put on the South Wales Police’s page earlier this week as cops appealed to the community to be on the lookout for him. He was wanted in connection with an assault on July 18 in Fforestfash, Swansea.

What would you have done?
