On-run girls asks cops for new mugshot

Midweek Sport - - SUNDAY SPORT -

A WOMAN al­legedly on the run from po­lice has caused a so­cial me­dia storm af­ter she asked a TV sta­tion to use a “bet­ter photo” of her when re­port­ing her es­cape.

Teenager Amy Sharp ( above) is al­leged to have bro­ken out of a po­lice sta­tion on Fri­day, Au­gust 19, be­fore run­ning away.

Po­lice is­sued a state­ment ac­com­pa­nied by two pho­to­graphs they had taken of the 18-year-old in a bid to find the young­ster.

The pic­tures and state­ment were put on onto Syd­ney’s 7 News Face­book page – and the first per­son to com­ment on the Aus­tralian sta­tion’s story and the pho­tos was Amy her­self.

Un­happy with how she looked in the po­lice mugshots she up­loaded a more flat­ter­ing shot in the com­ments sec­tion of the page with a sim­ple re­quest: “Can you use this photo please, thank you. Yours Amy Sharp XX”

She was later caught not far from Surry Hills, where she es­caped, and is ex­pected to be charged. MOST as­tro­nauts be­come two inches taller in space
