“If I was waving a gun, yeah, I will admit it. I was not waving a gun,” Sullivan told CBS Miami. “Did I have a gun in my pocket? Yes, and I want to be safe.” 

Sullivan added that his jail time was “memorable,” according to CBS Miami.

“I was treated like a celebrity inside,” Sullivan told CBS News. “I was on the psych floor because I take medications.”

Sullivan’s celeb status might have come from his unforgettable mugshot.

According to his family, the face tattoos are new and are “expression of his artistic side,”CBS Miami reported.
