This Aug. 8, 2014 booking photo released by the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department shows Robert Burt, of Pittsfield, Maine, as he reported to serve jail time in Madison, Maine, for a June arrest for operating under the influence while driving. Burt arrived wearing a T-shirt bearing his mug shot that was made at the time of the June arrest.

Madison, Maine (AP) — A man reporting to jail in Maine put some thought into his attire: He wore an orange T-shirt with his mug shot printed on it.

Robert Edward Burt, of Pittsfield, was arrested on a charge of operating under the influence in June and bailed out. He was later sentenced to 48 hours in jail.

WMTW-TV reports the 19-year-old Burt showed up at the Somerset County Jail on Aug. 8 wearing a T-shirt with a picture of his mug shot from his arrest. Then he had his new mug shot taken.

He was released on Aug. 10.
