Police busted 19-year-old Robert Burt of Pittsfield, Maine back in June for operating a vehicle under the influence and driving without a license. After the arrest, one of Burt’s [funny] co-workers decided to haze him by screen-printing the mustachioed mugshot on an orange T-shirt with “Burt Family Reunion 8/8-8/10/2014” and “sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff” below it. The “family reunion” bit is a reference to a member of Burt’s family who is currently incarcerated.
Fast forward to last week. Young mister Burt had to serve two days in custody after copping a drunk driving plea. Guess what shirt he wore to Somerset County Jail…
That’s right, Burt rolled up more than ready for his close-up. When booking him, the police took the mugshot you see above.
Unfortunately, the official mugshot cut off half the joke. Lower on the T-shirt there’s a photo of an overweight cat sitting on a couch next to a beer.
Burt spent 48 hours in jail and apparently kept the cops very amused. In fact, they asked Burt to hold the sign in his mugshot at just the right angle “so you could see the shirt,” he said on Facebook. “They laughed there asses off,” Burt triumphantly wrote.
Upon his release from prison, Burt declared on Facebook, “I’m out bitchs.” He soon afterward changed his profile picture to the now-infamous photo.
