I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .Man apologizes for rude mug shot

An Ohio 18-year-old has apologized for his mug shot, which features him displaying his middle finger and grabbing his crotch.

The mug shot taken of Mitchell Peterman after he was arrested Sunday on charges of underage drinking and obstruction went viral online after it was posted to Facebook by Bath Township police, the Akron Beacon Journal reported Tuesday.

Peterman, a student at the University of Akron, apologized for his rude photo Monday and police took the picture off Facebook later in the day.

"I haven't even seen them. I don't even want to look at them," Peterman said of the pictures. "It's something I wish I wouldn't have done, something I wish I could undo. So, I'm just going to try and distance myself from it, learn from it and leave it behind."
