A criminal defence lawyer has been caught red-faced after an advert for his own legal practice appeared next to his police mug shot.

Thomas Lewis Edwards, Schackow, Mercadante & Edwards, was snapped after being picked up by police following an alleged hit and run which damaged a property in Gainesville, Florida.

His picture was duly pasted on a local mug shot site, ironically however Edwards was no stranger to this particular website; his beaming visage was a regular feature thanks to his practices advertising campaign.

Edwards faces six charges pertaining to the incident.
