A man who sent Ohio police a selfie because he did not like the mugshot they were using has been arrested.

Police said Donald "Chip" Pugh was detained on Tuesday in Century, Florida, and is being held on another warrant out of Georgia.

"Got him! Chip 'The Selfie guy' Pugh has been arrested," tweeted police in Lima, Ohio.

The department posted on its Facebook page a new mugshot of a smiling Pugh after his arrest in Florida.

Lima police say he is also wanted for failing to appear in court and is a person of interest in several other cases.

The department said he sent them a picture of himself in a sport coat and sunglasses along with a message stating: "Here is a better photo that one is terrible."

Pugh even carried out an interview with Ohio radio station The Eagle, in which he claimed Lima police "just did me wrong".

He said: "They put a picture out that made me look like I was a Thundercat ... or James Brown on the run. I can't do that."

Lima police responded to the photo, adding: "We thank (Pugh) for being helpful, but now we would appreciate it if he would come speak to us at the (police station) about his charges."
