​ What's wrong with this mugshot?

Robert "Bobby" Burt; he had this jail booking photo of himself taken while wearing a T shirt with a picture of his mugshot on it from when he was arrested CBS affiliate WABI

MADISON, Maine - A man reporting to jail in Maine clearly wasn't trying to keep a low profile: He showed up wearing an orange T-shirt that had a picture of his previous mugshot printed on it.

Are we on the cusp of a new fashion trend for repeat offenders?

Robert Edward Burt, of Pittsfield -- aka Bobby -- was arrested in June on a charge of operating under the influence. He made bail, and was later sentenced to 48 hours in jail.

WMTW-TV reports that when the 19-year-old Burt showed up at the Somerset County Jail on Aug. 8 to do the time, he was clad in a T-shirt displaying a picture of his mugshot from when he was arrested.

Then he had a new mugshot taken - a double exposure, as it were.

Burt was released on Aug. 10.

What's next, prison selfies?
