Florida man using wanted poster as Facebook profile picture arrested

A Florida man wanted on outstanding warrants was so proud he made “Wanted of the Week,” he made the image his Facebook profile photo.

Stuart Police Department wanted Mack Yearwood because of two outstanding warrants for two counts of battery. Yearwood shared his wanted poster, originally posted by the Citrus County Sheriff's Office.

In the comments on Yearwood's page, Summer Nicole writes, "This isn't real is it uncle Mack"? Yearwood confirmed it was. Patty Yearwood replies, "I wish he would take it down too! The cops use Facebook now."

Yes, they do.

The Facebook account led police to Yearwood’s residence last week.

During the arrest, Yearwood asked to put on a pair of jeans, which contained marijuana in the pockets. Yearwood picked up an additional charge of possession of cannabis under 20 grams.
