PITTSFIELD, Maine, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- A Maine man was well-prepared for his return to the Somerset County Jail and he had a special shirt made for his second jailhouse photo of the summer.

Robert Burt was arrested for operating under the influence and driving without a license back in June and booked at the Somerset County Jail.


The 19-year-old worked out a plea deal with regard to the charges and he was sentenced to spend two days behind bars.

When he showed up to start serving his time on August 8, Burt had a special shirt on for the occasion featuring the photo of himself from the June arrest.

Underneath the photo was a caption reading, "Burt Family Reunion 8/8-8/10/2014" and "sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff," the Smoking Gun reported. There was also a cat photo that included a television remote and a bottle of Bud Light

Burt has another family member at the jail, hence the family reunion reference.

According to a Facebook post, the officers who took the second photo made Burt "hold the slate in a way so you could see the shirt" and they "laughed there asses off."
