Zimbio have thrown together a top 100 list of celebrity mugshots from the past, we all know what the recent ones look like so here is some of the ones that aren’t used often.
Anna Nicole Smith
Long before she became a tabloid star and her untimely end, Anna Nicole Smith had this mugshot snapped in Houston in 1989. The starlet, who was still years away from being named Playboy’s Playmate of the Year in 1993, was arrested for drunken driving.
If you don’t recognize Suzanne Somers in this picture, there’s a reason for that: it was taken before she was famous. In March of 1970, Somers was arrested in San Francisco for attempting to pass bad checks totaling around $100. She avoided prosecution by agreeing to pay the amount back.
This grainy shot of Carmen Electra (real name: Tara Patrick) was snapped in Miami Beach in November of 1999, after police were called to break up a fight between Electra and her then-husband, Dennis Rodman. Electra was charged with misdemeanor battery, and taken in handcuffs to a a Miami-Dade County domestic violence unit. The fight was apparently sparked when Rodman saw one of Electra’s ex-boyfriends on television and became irate.
Jackass star Steve-O (real name: Stephen Glover) was arrested in August of 2002 for one of the more unusual reasons out of anyone on the list. He had allegedy stapled his scrotum to his thigh during a nightclub performance, causing him to be arrested for indecent exposure. It’s still not as a dumb as drunk driving, the crime of many of the others listed here.
Steve McQueen wasn’t quite able to make his own Great Escape when he got busted in 1972 for drunken driving in Anchorage, Alaska. He does, however, get bonus points for flashing the peace symbol. Namaste, Steve McQueen.
By far the oldest mugshot we’ve got, check out this portrait the Chairman of the Board as a young man. Frank Sinatra was busted in Bergan, New Jersey in 1938 at the age of 23, on charges of allegedly seducing a married woman. Yep, you could get arrested for that back then.
In April of 2001, Vince Vaughn was arrested in a North Carolina town after a massive brawl outside a New Hanover County bar. Vaughn, who was in town shooting the movie Domestic Disturbance, was drinking with Steve Buscemi. Vaughn and another bar patron reportedly nearly came to blows, and Buscemi attempted to play peacemaker. Buscemi was stabbed six times for his trouble, and Vaughn was arrested for fighting in public.
Before he was one of the richest men in the world, Bill Gates was just a tech whiz kid who drove too fast. Here’s a pic from his arrest in Alburquerque, New Mexico in 1977. Gates was busted three seperate times by the cops in Alburquerque in the late 70s, all for reportedly speeding around town in his Porche 911.
Terrence Howard is known for his intense performance on the screen, and he brings that same intensity to this mug shot. The actor was arrested in August of 2000, after allegedly assaulting a Continental Airlines flight attendant after refusing to return to his seat when the seat belt sign was on. The charges, it should be noted, were eventually dropped.
In March of 1995, Tupac Shakur had this mug shot taken by the New York Department of Corrections. Shakur had been found guilty of the sexual assault of a female fan, and served months in prison before being bailed out by Suge Knight. While in prison, Shakur released Me Against the World, becoming the only artist to have an album at number one while serving a prison sentence.
When news broke that the character that played Bud Bundy on Married… With Children was busted for pot possession, the jokes pretty much wrote themselves. David Faustino was arrested in May of 2007 in New Smyrna Beach, FL after police witnessed Faustino yelling profanities at his ex-wife in the middle of an intersection. When the cops discovered weed on the actor, the handcuffs came out, leading to this mug shot.
Now this is how you do a mugshot. R&B singer Akon turned himself in December of 2007, on charges of endangering the welfare of a minor following an incident when he tossed a young fan offstage after the boy reportedly threw something at him. Akon (born Aliaune Badara Akon Thiam) decided to get dressed up for the occasion.
In November of 1970, Jane Fonda was already facing charges of federal drug smuggling when she was arrested again in Cleveland for allegedly kicking a police officer. She fought the officer after being stopped at U.S. Customs and was found to be in possession of a large amount of prescription pills. All charges were later dropped.
Andy Dick’s rap sheet is impressively long at this point, but none have produced a mug shot quite as disturbing as this, from a July 2008 arrest. Dick was accused of sexual battery, after allegedly grabbing a 17-year-old girl’s tank top and pulling it down, exposing her breasts outside a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant. When cops searched him, they also found marijuana and Xanax.
On average, nobody looks good in a mug shot, but David Bowie is anything but average. The Thin White Duke was busted in March of 1976 for pot possesion, along with fellow rocker Iggy Pop and two other men.
You can take the man out of politics, but you can’t take the politics out of the man. In October of 2005, former House majority leader Tom DeLay’s career was in shambles, as allegations of corruption piled up at his doorstep, but you wouldn’t know that from his mugshot. The future Dancing with the Stars competitor flashed his pearly whites after turning himself in for a photo and fingerprinting at the Harris
County police department. Looking good, Tom.
Joshua Jackson was at a Carolina Hurricanes hockey game in November of 2002 when he allegedly drunkenly assaulting a security guard working the event. According to police, Jackson grabbed the guard around the neck and began to throw punches. He was found to have a blood alcohol content of .14, almost twice the legal limit.
In December of 1971, future broadcasting legend Larry King was working for a high-powered financier when he got caught on the wrong end of a deal. When King wasn’t able to pay back the his debts, he was arrested on charges of grand larceny. A judge threw the charges out, and King eventually pled no contest to one count of passing bad checks.
Shock rocker Marilyn Manson had this mugshot snapped in January of 2001, after he reportedly shoved his crotch in the face of security guard during a concert outside of Detroit. The security guard, Joshua Keasler, told police that Manson pantomimed masturbation, approached Keasler from behind, spat on his head, wrapped his legs around the guard, and rubbed his crotch on Keasler’s head and neck. Keasler was understandably upset.
Yanni, a pianist known for his soothing New Age music, wasn’t calming any nerves when he was arrested in March of 2006 after an alleged domestic abuse incident. Florida cops arrested Yanni (real name: John Yanni Christopher) after the musician allegedly struck his live-in girlfriend and ordered her to vacate his waterfront mansion. According to police, he also verbally abused the woman, calling her a “c—” “whore,” and “garbage.”
