The 20-year-old's photo went viral in his hometown of Jenkins, Kentucky, and eventually reached the local police department, which sent officers to pay Baker a visit Monday evening.
He was charged with theft by unlawful taking and released. His arraignment was scheduled for today.
Shortly after he left jail yesterday, Baker posted a status update on his Facebook page. "yea lol i went too jail over facebook," he wrote. Referring to the now-removed photo, Baker told a friend, "yea lol u would just have to seen it it was funny as hell tho."
