Washington County Detention Officer Posts Eye Shadow ‘Mug Shot’ Of Herself
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – A detention officer at the Washington County Sheriff’s Office has posted pictures on her personal Facebook page, showing herself wearing eye shadow similar to that in a booking photo taken earlier this week of an inmate at the detention center.
“Soooooo, here’s my challenge,” Detention Officer Livona Springston says in a Facebook post on Friday (Sept. 5), “now ladies it’s up to you.”
The picture above is from Springston’s Facebook page.
Some people who commented on the Facebook post note that she is a “copycat” who looks like a woman accused of attempting to steal $144 in eye shadow from a local store.
As first reported by 5NEWS earlier this week, Brandy Allen, 31, of Fayetteville was arrested on suspicion of stealing makeup from the Ulta Beauty Store in Fayetteville. Since then, the story went viral on media sites across the globe, appearing on television network shows and online news sites such as The Smoking Gun, Huffington Post, the New York Daily News, and Yahoo. (Allen is pictured below in her detention center mug shot.)
The story of the arrest generated more than four million views on the 5NEWS Facebook page.
Allen faces charges of shoplifting and disorderly conduct. Both potential charges are misdemeanors. She was released from the detention on an $830 bond and has a Sept. 26 court date.
Springston is listed on the Washington County Sheriff’s Office website as a detention officer. On her Facebook page, she notes she has worked at the Sheriff’s Office since November 2007.
One person who commented on Springston’s Facebook post wrote, “Did you steal that eye make-up?”
Another person wrote, “We need a side by side on Channel 5.”
