Best Celebrity Mugshots Of All Time (And Many You Won’t Expect)

There’s something about a good old prison mugshot. It has the ability to reduce even the greatest and most powerful people to the same level of the rest of us.

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

The Rolling Stones may have been middle-class men who’d attended expensive schools, but they were truly rock and roll rebels. In 1972, every last member of the band got their collar felt for drug possession and assaulting a member of the press (a photographer no less) so that explains these mug shots.
11. Steve-O

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.

8. Anna Nicole-Smith

The Playboy model is famous for the end of her short, sad life where she shacked up with a nonagenarian billionaire in the failed hopes of a huge payout when he died. She would then take a drugs overdose and end her own life. However, she was also arrested for drunk driving when she was younger.
