celebrity mug shots ti

Rapper T.I. has done a couple of mugshots at this point, but we like his early work the best. Here he is after a September 2003 arrest, in which Florida police charged him with battery on a law enforcement officer, trespassing, and disorderly conduct, after he and his entourage allegedly raised a ruckus at a local mall.

The judge sentenced him to 18 months probation following the incident.

32.) Vanilla Ice

celebrity mug shots vanilla ice

His doofy smile, botched Caesar haircut, and strange expression all make this a hall-of-fame photo.

31.) Vince Vaughn

celebrity mug shots Vince Vaughn

After a 2001 bar fight for which Vince Vaughn was arrested and in which actor Steve Buscemi was stabbed by a third party, the former actor was snapped in this classic mugshot.

We’re not sure if it’s his bleary eyes or his pouty face that makes this photo slightly funny, but it’s definitely a far cry from the polished actor we’re used to seeing on screen.

30.) Joshua Jackson

celebrity mug shots Joshua Jackson

While the star of The Affair is generally known for his clean-cut good looks, his scruffy, surprised-looking face in this 2002 mugshot is worthy of framing.

And while the then-24-year-old former Dawson’s Creek star, who was arrested for assaulting a security guard, seems to have kept on the straight and narrow ever since, his former partner, Diane Kruger, admitted to Jimmy Kimmel that her mother even questioned him about the arrest photo when they first met.

29.) Nick Carter

Who would have thought that out of all the dudes in the Backstreet Boys, Nick Carter would turn out to be the bad boy?

If you want a mugshot of Bobby Brown, there’s a whole slew of them to choose from.

We like this one, from January 2003, after Brown pleaded guilty to a 1996 DUI incident and sentenced to eight days in jail. “You think jail scares me?” his look seems to be saying, “I lived with Whitney Houston.”

26.) Lil’ Kim

celebrity mug shots lil kim

In July of 1996, Lil’ Kim was busted for pot possession, after police raided the house of Biggie Smalls in Teaneck, NJ.

celebrity mug shots Marilyn manson

Of course, even the Antichrist Superstar himself looks a little embarrassed when embraced by the long arm of the law.

7.) Mel Gibson

celebrity mug shots mel gibson

4.) Paris Hilton

celebrity mug shots paris hilton

This one is mainly funny because it’s kind of a treat to see Paris Hilton in a mug shot instead of vamping in a bikini with little white dogs and jewels or partying on top of an Ibiza bar. She spent twenty-three days in jail for a 2007 DUI charge (poor baby) and in her photo she looks as vacant and clueless as ever.

She has a little smile and some pink lipstick – basically she looks like a prom queen gone bad. I’m pretty sure she has a hairpiece stuck on top of her head too – tres chic!

3.) Hugh Grant

celebrity mug shots hugh grant

Staring sheepishly down the camera lens with his shoulders hunched, Hugh Grant looked awkward to say the least. But then this was not a typical photo call.

1 .) Nick Nolte

celebrity mug shots Nick Nolte

Nolte got a DUI in 2002 and this celebrity mug shot is our favorite. He looks like Freddy Krueger at a Sandals resort in his blue, yellow, and pink Hawaiian shirt, and his matted hair is sticking out like a man newly electrocuted.

The good news is that he’s not smiling. He’s a talented actor. Well here’s to hoping he’s not posing for the cops anytime soon.
