So, it’s kind of comforting to find that when a celebrity is arrested, they’re not allowed to call their publicist and have a Photoshop artist on hand to sort out their soon-to-be despoiled image.
These 12 celebrities all found themselves felt up by the sticky palm of the law, and they all found that they looked just like the rest of us would in a mugshot, too.
12. The Rolling Stones
It’s actually quite incredible that this is Steve-O’s only mugshot, given the insane stunts that he pulled during the course of filming Jackass. Steve-O probably looks so dour in this photo because he was arrested for indecent exposure during a stunt where he stapled a part of his anatomy to his thigh. You can work out it.
10. Shia LeBeouf
LeBeouf is a big hit with the police, and not in a good way. He’s been arrested many times, but this is probably his best (worst) mugshot. He was only 21 when he got drunk and refused to be escorted from the premises of a store by a security guard. He was charged with trespassing.
9. James Brown
There’s no doubt that the “Godfather of Soul” can be a 28 karat lunatic when the situation requires it. At the age of 70, he was busted for assaulting his wife, Tomi Rae, and ended up in the station having his photo taken for anti-posterity. He’s been arrested before for guns, drugs, and many other things.
