On Thursday, John posted a challenge on his Twitter saying he’d pay $25,000 to whoever could unearth the mugshot from his 2001 arrest for speeding and driving without a license in Georgia, writing: “I was arrested for the same offense as Patrick Stump,” in reference to the Fall Out Boy singer who was arrested Tuesday on a two-year-old warrant for driving without a valid license.

He offered to donate the sum to a charity of site editor Harvey Levin’s choice; his money will benefit an animal charity.

Mugshot-specializing website The Smoking Gun was the first to dig up the vintage snap.

“While he technically made this offer [of $25,000], via Twitter, to the gossip site TMZ, we figured it applied to any other bounty hunters,” the website wrote.
