Sometimes the booking photos we feature on Mugshots Friday just deserve closer examination. A man arrested with his face painted like an American flag on the Fourth of July was clearly one of those times.

We've learned from a Miami Beach police report that the American hero you see here is 31-year-old Eric Oram Butkiewicz. He was arrested at LIV at the Fontainebleau Hotel after security there told police he was dealing narcotics on the premises.

According to the report, Butkiewicz told police: "I possibly have three Xanax bars in my possession."

Police allegedly discovered 13 of the pills in his front pocket. He was booked on felony possession of a controlled substance and will be arraigned August 3.

He was arrested at 4:03 a.m. July 5, so his face was clearly painted for the patriotic occasion of the previous day.

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming. God bless America.

This mans patrotism brings a red white and blue tear to my eye. A true American hero, so he had some scrips, he was feeling the love. Cops are a major buzz kill.

 Yeah, but that right does not give one the freedom to break the rules and regulations of the society in which one chooses to live.

Our division killed a countless number of Commies for Mommie to give the lad the semi-freedom to obey our ruling-class masters.

the Declaration of Independence guarantees us the right to pursue happiness.  That right is abrogated millions of times a day by American cops, who are enemies of humanity. Eric Butkawitz is a hero.
