Cops find humor in man's tattooed knuckles

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A Facebook photo has more than 4,500 likes since the Bangor, Maine Police Department posted it on Monday. The photo is of a man holding out his fists with the words spelled, "COPS SUCK" tattooed across his knuckles while standing next to a smiling officer.

Instead of receiving negative comments over the photo, the police department gained attention for using humor in its social media existence.

Instead of reaching for handcuffs, officers Jimmy Burns and Keith Larby grabbed their cameras because they were so impressed.

The man told the officers that he regretted getting that written on his knuckles a few years back. They all shared a laugh and he agreed to let them get a photo of the ink.

Larby smiled for the camera and gave a thumbs up.
