Arrested man takes selfie at police station
IOWA CITY, Iowa — A mugshot wasn’t the only picture taken when a man was arrested for speeding.
Gilbert Phelps was taken to a police station in Iowa City for driving under the influence.
It was there that he felt compelled to take a selfie, with an officer in the background.
He asked the officer first, and then he took the picture.
The officer smiled and gave a “thumbs up.”
Phelps then posted the picture online, along with pictures of police cruisers chasing a car.
Police say he smelled of alcohol and that he admitted to smoking marijuana before driving.
