Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Ah, celebrities; some of them we love to love and others we love to hate. Either way, they’re always in the lime light. We see them walking down the red carpet on award nights in all their glamour. Most of the time when we see these admired stars, they have their hair done perfectly, they’re wearing the “right” outfits, they have makeup on (the women and sometimes the men), and they usually have a smile plastered on their faces.

What happens when we see them ready to walk into a jail cell rather than an awards ceremony? What are they wearing, what does their hair look like, and what’s the look on their faces? As you’ll see, it varies. Some should win an award just for the way they look in their mug shot. Let’s start with the past and work our way through memory lane to present day celebrity arrests, shall we?

The Early Years

Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle

roscoe Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Who?

Roscoe Arbuckle was a successful and brilliant silent film comedian and actor. Later in his career he also directed and became a screenwriter. Though you might not have ever heard of him, you may find more significance in who he impacted. He mentored Charlie Chaplin and discovered the talents of Bob Hope and Buster Keaton.

General Information

Born: March 24, 1887
Died: June 29, 1933
Date of Arrest: September 1921
Location of Arrest: San Francisco, California
Charges: manslaughter and rape

What happened?

In short, Arbuckle was either in the wrong place at the wrong time, was framed, or was really guilty of one or both of these crimes. Over the years, the story has lost some pieces, but it appears that the “victim”, Virginia Rappe was in a Arbuckle’s hotel room. Roscoe and some friends, including Ms. Rappe were partying together that night. Rappe was known to be a heavy drinker and seemed to have been very ill that evening. A doctor came in to check on her and said that her symptoms were mostly due to alcohol intoxication. He gave her morphine to clam her.

Rappe was admitted to the hospital two days later and died the next day. Rappe’s companion at the party told the doctor that Arbuckle raped her though the doctor found no evidence. He was later arrested for rape and manslaughter.

Outcome

To make a very long and scandalous story short, Fatty Arbuckle went through three trials. The first two trials ended in a deadlocked jury and were declared mistrials. The third and final trial resulted in a not guilty verdict. The decision was made by the jury in only six minutes.

Mug Shot Award: Best Mafia-Looking Mug Shot of a Non-Mafia Member Award

Mug Shot Commentary

It’s not the worst mug shot ever witnessed, but he appropriately looks glum and his fashion sense needs improvement. Check out that bow tie!

The 1960s

Al Pacino

al pacino 214x300 Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Who?

Al Pacino hardly needs an introduction. He’s and actor and director best known for his role as Michael Corleone in The Godfather movie trilogy. He also is well known for his roles in Scarface and Scent of a Woman.

General Information

Born: April 25, 1940
Date of Arrest: January 7, 1961
Location of Arrest: Rhode Island
Charges: Possession of a concealed weapon
Bail: $2,000
Bail paid? No; at the time he couldn’t afford it. He spent three days in jail.

What happened?

When Pacino was only 21 years old and a struggling actor, he and two friends were pulled over in a vehicle and a pistol was found in the trunk of the car. Though the three insisted that they were on their way to an acting job and needed it for a skit, the police didn’t buy their story. Perhaps the police found the story unbelievable because the three were wearing black masks and gloves which is what prompted the police officer to stop them to begin with.

Outcome

The charges were later dropped and Pacino went on to become a star.

Mug Shot Commentary

This isn’t horrible, though I doubt that this photo went in his portfolio for his acting auditions. He looks disinterested and his collar isn’t lying down. I’m not sure if that was a fashion statement gone wrong or if he just neglected to straighten it out.

The 1970s

Jane Fonda

jane fonda 263x300 Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Who?

Jane Fonda has been famous for one thing or another since the 1960s. We’ve seen her as an actress, a writer, a fitness personality (she was in several workout tapes), a model, and a political activist. She’s been involved in things from movies to protests for decades.

General Information

Born: December 21, 1937
Date of Arrest: November 1970
Location of Arrest: Cleveland, Ohio
Charges: Possession of illegal drugs

What happened?

Reportedly, Jane Fonda was attempting to smuggle a large amount of valium, tranquilizers, and diet pills from Canada.

Outcome

The charges were dropped.

Mug Shot Award: Hippiest Celebrity Mug Shot Award

Mug Shot Commentary

What’s with the clenched fist? I’m sure they made her pose this way, but why? Also, not her best look, but I guess we all have our bad days.

Larry King

larry king 300x200 Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Who?

We all know Larry King, right? He’s a professional television and radio host. He runs the television interview show Larry King Live on CNN Network.

General Information

Born: November 19, 1933
Date of Arrest: December 20, 1971
Location of Arrest: Dade County, Florida
Charges: Grand larceny

What happened?

Larry King had some bad dealings with a man named Louis Wolfson who had been arrested and convicted of selling unregistered stock. The dealings between the two are very unclear; however, Larry King was arrested for grand larceny and fourteen counts of bad checks.

Outcome

King got lucky and the statute of limitations ran out on the grand larceny charge, so it was forced to be dropped. He pleaded no contest to one of the bad check charges and was off the air waves for three years as a result.

Mug Shot Award: Deer in Headlights Award

Mug Shot Commentary

King would like for us to forgive the polka dots. It was the early 1970s after all. He’d also like for us to overlook the unattractive glasses and ad haircut. Again, this is attributed to the 1970s; not his fault.

Dennis Hopper

HopperDennis 300x187 Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Who?

Hopper is an actor that has been active sine the mid 1950s and is most known for his roles in Blue Velvet (1986) and Easy Rider (1969).

General Information

Born: May 17, 1936
Date of Arrest: July 2, 1975
Location of Arrest: Taos, New Mexico
Charges: Reckless driving, fleeing the scene of an accident, evading arrest

What happened?

Apparently the car accident that Hopper caused was minor, but he fled the scene and didn’t report it.

Outcome

Hopper was found guilty and was charged $250 in fines. Throughout the entire ordeal, Hopper only spent twenty minutes in jail.

Mug Shot Commentary

Dennis Hopper isn’t groomed and it doesn’t look like he’d showered in days. He definitely hadn’t shaved! All in all, it’s a pretty crappy mug shot, but in a way so bland that it doesn’t even warrant an award. Isn’t it amazing the trouble you can get into even when you’re famous and/or have money? Perhaps having money and being famous has something to do with some of these celebrities’ mishaps.

Tim Allen

AllenTim Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Who?

I’m sure you already know who he is since everyone knows who Tim Allen is, but just in case, here’s a brief bio. Allen is an actor and comedian who is well known for starring in the sitcom Home Improvement. He also has acted in films such as Santa Clause.

Outcome

He could have faced up to life in prison, but took a reduction in sentencing in return for giving the names of higher dealers. He served 28 months in a federal correctional institution.

After that, he began is standup comedy and the rest is history. But, wait! In 1997, Tim Allen was arrested again, but this time for drink driving in which he was sentenced to one year probation.

Mug Shot Award: Most Lopsided Mustache

Mug Shot Commentary

Allen looks like a bad retro photo that you might see on a flashback during a sitcom. Did they ever use this on his shoe Home Improvement? They should have!

The 1980s

Anna Nicole Smith

SmithAnnaNicole 211x300 Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Who?

If you don’t know who Anna Nicole Smith is, then I would have to question where you’ve been in the past decade. Smith was a model, actress and television personality, but more importantly she was a former Playboy Playmate of the Year. Her death in 2007 was even more controversial than her life.

General Information

Date of Arrest: September 21, 1989
Location of Arrest: Houston, Texas
Charges: DUI

What Happened?

Anna Nicole Smith was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in Houston, Texas. This was before she became famous.

Mug Shot Award: Most Beautiful Mug Shot

Mug Shot Commentary

Though she looks a little glassy-eyed, you still wouldn’t expect anything less than flawless from Anna Nicole Smith. If this was her at her worst, then it explains a lot!

The 1990s

William Kennedy Smith

williamKennedy 300x192 Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Smith is actually a physician, but that’s not why he’s famous. He’s a Kennedy. He’s JFK’s and Senator Ted Kennedy’s nephew.

Date of Arrest: May 5, 1993
Location of Arrest: Los Angeles, California
Charges: Drunk driving

Outcome

Keanu confessed at the time of the incident. He was released and charges were dropped. However, that wasn’t the end of his legal bouts. In 2007, he apparently got frustrated with a paparazzo and hit the photographer in his Porsche. The details are sketchy, but the photographer was treated for a broken wrist and Reeves was arrested and released.

Mug Shot Commentary

Keanu doesn’t look much different in his mug shot than on screen, so either he came prepared with a comb and washcloth or he just lucked out. However, he does have a look on his face that says, “Let me out of here so I can have another drink”.

Christian Slater

christian slater mugshot 300x200 Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Who?

Slater is a well known television and movie actor who is most recently known for his role on NBC’s television show My Own Worst Enemy.

General Information

Location of Arrest: JFK Airport in New York

What Happened?

Well, this particular time, Christian Slater was found taking a gun onto an airplane. However, this hasn’t been his only time in trouble with the law. In 1989, Slater led the police in West Hollywood, California on a high speed drunken car chase that ended in him crashing into a telephone pole. In 1997, he was arrested for three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of battery and in 2005 he was arrested yet again for sexual harassment. I guess there are many sides to Slater and the crimes he will commit.

Mug Shot Award: Most Jock-looking Mug Shot

Mug Shot Commentary

What’s with the jacket with the big “M” on it? Does it stand for “moron”?

Hugh Grant

hugh grant mug shot 236x300 Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Hugh Grant was arrested when he attempted to hire prostitute “Devine Brown”.

Outcome

Grant pleaded no contest and received two years probation and paid $1180 in court fees and fines. In addition, Grant had to attend an AIDS education class.

Mug Shot Commentary

Take notice of the glasses hanging from his shirt. Perhaps if he’d been wearing his glasses at the time that he tried to hire the prostitute, he would have noticed the police officers hanging around and this ugly little incident could have been avoided. Instead he made quite a spectacle of himself.

Robert Downey Jr.

robertdowney Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Robert Downey, Jr. has been a film actor since the early 1970s at the age of five and is still active in show business today.

What Happened?

When police stopped Downey for a regular traffic violation, they discovered that he was intoxicated. They also found heroine and an unloaded pistol in his possession.

Outcome

His suspended sentence with probation was only the beginning of a long string of arrests for Downey. To make a long story short, after many arrests and a trip or two into rehab, Robert Downey, Jr. has been a success story and remains clean from drugs as his acting career again soars!

Mug Shot Commentary

Not too much to say. I don’t really feel it necessary to pick on Downey since his success of being clean should be commended.

Matthew McConaughey

Outcome

McConaughey pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of violating the noise ordinance laws in Austin, Texas and paid a fine of $50.

Mug Shot Commentary

The photo is bad for Carmen Electra but still awesome compared to the average woman (no offense intended, but it’s CARME ELECTRA).

The 2000s

What Happened?

In 2000, Renfro was arrested for stealing a yacht; that’s right, a yacht! In 2005, he was arrested again for purchasing heroine.

Outcome

Renfro only received two years probation for the offense, if you can believe it. The ultimate price for his drug addiction was far steeper than that.

Mug Shot Award: Most Pissed Off Mug Shot

Mug Shot Commentary

I don’t know what he was trying to prove with the “tough guy” look on his face. The kid was 18 years old, had a baby face, and freckles. I don’t see the intimidation factor, do you?

Outcome

After pleading no contest, the charges against Vaughn were dropped.

Mug Shot Award: Foggiest Look in a Mug Shot

It’s obvious someone had a bit too much to drink.

Along with a $150 fine, Jackson had to attend alcohol education classes and performed 24 hours of community service.

Date of Arrest: July 28, 2006
Location of Arrest: Los Angeles area in California
Charges: DUI

What Happened?

This made national media and was an eye-opener for the public. The otherwise squeaky clean and openly religious Mel Gibson was arrested fro driving under the influence. What was more shocking is that he made derogatory remarks to the arresting police officer about the fact that the officer is Jewish.

Mug Shot Commentary

Even in a mug shot Paris looks good. You can see just a hint of a smug look on her face and it’s definitely evident that this is just another picture and she should “strike a pose”.

Nicole Richie

Nicole richie mugshot 238x300 Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

O.J. Simpson

oj simpson mugshot 247x300 Busted! Celebrity Mug Shots

Who?

You may expect O.J. to appear in a list of athletes, but actually he’s a former football star and a celebrity. He made several guest appearances on television shows and also appeared in movies. The most well known movies that O.J. was in were most likely the Naked Gun movies. At any rate, O.J. is too interesting to leave out of any list in which he might be placed.

Simpson is even more famous (or infamous, depending on our outlook) for the murder trial of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson was found not guilty on these murder charges. The debate of whether he was really not guilty is always a heated one.
