Apropos of our earlier discussion of celebrity mugshots with Gov. Rick Perry’s appearance in a Texas police station, Robert Burt has his own views on how to dress for your police portrait. If this mugshot of Robert Burt simply a bit surreal, it is because Burt was arrested wearing a teeshirt with his prior mugshot displayed on the front. He now has a great image for the back. Consider it a low-rent version of Norman Rockwell’s Triple Self-Portrait technique.
Burt was arrested for DUI and and driving without a license in Pittsfield, Maine. Two hours after pleading guilty to the drunk driving count, Burt sent out a Facebook announcement that he was starting his two-day jail sentence: “Going to do my 48 hours whoo.”
Apparently, a co-worker at the Pittsfield restaurant were he works made the t-shirt for him after a mid-June arrest. For his repeat appearance, Burt wore the prior mugshot with a caption of “Burt Family Reunion 8/8-8/10/2014” and “sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff.” The bit about a family reunion is an apparent reference to an incarcerated Burt relative.
Burt said that the jailers wanted him to take the photo to capture the shirt and that “They laughed there asses off haha.”
He later proclaimed “I’m out bitchs” with “Probably the best mug shot ever haha.” Well, that is certainly something, Robert, not much mind you but something.
