Bud Weisser, this mugshot's for you.

A teen with the most St. Louis name ever is facing jail time after turning himself in to police over a suspected burglary.

Bud Weisser -- yes, that's really his name -- was charged Friday with one count of second degree burglary.

St. Louis County Police say Weisser broke in through the window of a gas station in the 900 block of Lemay Ferry Road at 4:30 a.m. August 21. An officer on patrol that night briefly pursued a man -- later said to be Weisser -- who climbed out of the shattered window and ran away.

Weisser, of the 200 block of Espenschied Street, turned himself in days later when police began to suspect him, but he did not make a statement, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Weisser faces seven years in jail if convicted.

County police tweeted Weisser's name and mugshot Wednesday. Hilarity ensued:
