A teenager who allegedly escaped police custody in Australia found her mugshot on a local news station's Facebook page, but kindly asked them to use a different photo of her instead.

Amy Sharp provided the photo she wanted to be used for her story in a comment on the post. The 18 year-old was wanted by New South Wales police for property offenses and escaping police custody. Cops caught up with her the day after she gave the more flattering photo to the news station.
