A "super fan" of the New England Patriots is being sought by Florida authorities after he failed to show up for a court appearance.
Victor Thompson wears the love of his favorite team on his head.
Thompson apparently loves the Patriots, and Tom Brady, so much that in 2008, he had a copy of Brady's helmet tattooed on his head, WMUR reported. Thompson wanted to commemorate the Patriots' perfect regular season, he told the station.
Now Thompson is wanted in Florida for buying synthetic marijuana and not showing up in court to answer to the charges police filed against him in 2014, according to The Smoking Gun.
It's the tattoo that has made Thompson's story go viral.
Police in St. Petersburg, Florida, took not just the standard front and side view mug shot, but also included a top, back and second side shot to fully show the artwork.
The tattoo doesn't have just the left and right Patriots' logos. It also includes the American flag, the NFL logo and the helmet brand "Riddell" inked across Thompson's forehead, The New York Daily News reported.
The Smoking Gun reports that Thompson was in court on Jan. 7 to answer charges filed earlier in the month, but didn't show up for a scheduled hearing in connection with his 2014 case.
