BANGOR, ME (AP) — A police officer in Maine is getting a laugh out of a man’s “Cops Suck” tattoo.
The Bangor Police Department posted a Facebook photo Monday of the man holding out his fists with letters tattooed on his knuckles next to a smiling officer.
The photo now has more than 3,700 likes.
The Bangor Police Department has received attention for using humor in its social media presence.
The department noted that the man apparently had a problem with authority at some time in his life, but that he cooperated when they asked him to move on over the weekend.
Officers Jimmy Burns and Keith Larby were so impressed by the tattoo that they reached for their camera, not the handcuffs. Larby smiled for the camera and gave a thumbs up.
