This Friday, Aug. 8, 2014, booking photo released by the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department shows Bobby 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 — A Maine man who served a 48-hour sentence for drunken driving wore something special for his jail booking photo: a T-shirt featuring his mug shot.

Nineteen-year-old Bobby Burt, of Pittsfield, had the mug shot from his June arrest printed on the orange shirt, along with the words, "Sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff."

The mug shot is making the rounds online thanks to The Smoking Gun, which posted it Monday.

Sean Maguire, the jail's compliance manager, said there's no policy on what inmates can or cannot wear for booking photos.

Burt, who's using the mug shot for his Facebook profile picture, didn't immediately return a call left at his place of employment Tuesday.
