Mugshot Mayhem: The Most Epic Mugshots of All Time

People go to jail every day. Some are scared for their lives to be going behind bars. Others seem to have a kick out of it while the rest are just completely insane. Go through these mugshots and determine what you will from how some of these people appear.

Real-Life Joker

Real-Life Joker

Why so serious? The Joker doesn’t usually take things this seriously. Maybe this guy, Jeremy Putman should not have been walking around in public impersonating the Joker while wielding a sword! He was charged with a Class 6 Felony for such ridiculous actions. Now, all we need is a Batman.

Ears in the Hole

Ears in the Hole

It takes multiple glances to figure out what is going on in this photo. At first, it looked as though he had some kind of strange growth on his ear, but no, that is not the case. It seems as though he previously had “plugs” in his ears and decided to wrap the hole and excess skin around the top part of his ear. For what reason? Who knows. Truly a strange configuration. It could have also passed as rubber bands around his ears. Hey, to each his own so we are not here to judge.

Oompa Loompa Mugshot

Oompa Loompa Mugshot

No, your eyes do not deceive you. This man truly resembles an Oompa Loompa. All of the details of his appearance mesh so well together: The pink pallor of his skin, the dyed green hair, all correlate perfectly with the bright orange jumpsuit. Perhaps he was arrested for stealing candy. I’m sure Willy Wonka would be very disappointed.

People these days really will do anything. Why would someone want to resemble an Oompa Loompa in the first place? Maybe it was his favorite childhood film and he just had a special love for those little guys so he wanted to look like one.

Tattooed Eyeball

Tattooed Eyeball

Not only is this guy’s expression scary, but his facial tattoos resemble a robot. Is that a contact in his right eye? He very much looks like an extra from The Walking Dead with the skull tattooed alongside half his face and the blackened eye. We’re guessing it’s not his first time getting arrested.

This man is ready for whatever. Just look at him. He would take on anybody on this list and not fret one bit. He has the potential to scare you with just looks alone. We don’t even know how big he his but we are assuming he has some size to him as well.

The Pierced Lady

The Pierced Lady

Fifty years ago, this lady would have been a member of a circus freak show. But now she could be a famous actress or extra on the show American Horror Story. Her expression makes her seem like she is a kind lady, however. Do you think they made her remove all those piercings before changing out and putting her in with other inmates? Certainly seems like that would be a smart idea.

All of those holes most likely closed once they took them out and she was probably highly upset at that because that is a ton of money she paid to get all those piercings.

The Frank Zappa Impersonator

The Frank Zappa Impersonator

This guy looks like Frank Zappa the zany rocker from the 1970s. Interestingly, his doppelganger, the real Zappa, was once arrested for conspiracy to produce pornography, a felony that later kept him exempt from the Vietnam War.

This impersonator’s expression, however, is either saying that he is on drugs or that he just saw a ghost. You be the judge. It could also be saying that he hurt his jaw really bad because it is slightly dangling to one direction. He could have needed some medical assistance right after he took this picture because that doesn’t look normal.

What Happened to Your Head?

What Happened to Your Head?

Something must have gone terribly wrong before he took this shot. His head looks like he just fell on a field of barbwire. He also looks unbothered by the whole thing. We really wonder what could have done that to this man’s head so we don’t encounter the same problem.

If it wasn’t barbwire then his crazy ex-girlfriend could have keyed his forehead instead of his car. And as he was trying to get his revenge he ended up getting caught by the cops which landed him in this position. You know, anything is possible.

The Bird Made the Shot

The Bird Made the Shot

The story behind how the parrot got into his picture is a bit wild so we’ll just tell you the short version. He went to court with his well-trained parrot and told him to wait in the tree until he came back outside.

It took longer than expected so the man ended up not cooperating and then the judge remanded him into custody. However, he was nice enough to let him go get his bird for a picture. At least his last moment with his bird was a touching photon of the two together. He could have cracked a smile.

Jail, or Vogue?

mugshot-beauty-02.jpg

If anyone is ready for their close-up, it’s this woman. While she looks more like she’s ready for a high fashion photoshoot on a fancy set, she somehow found herself in jail that day.

Everyone else here looks like they’re having the weirdest and worst day of their life (we hope) but this woman is poised and looking gorgeous. We can’t even tell that she was arrested or what she could possibly be in for, because all we notice is that she’s drop-dead gorgeous.

Black Eyes of Regret

mugshot-south-carolina-01.jpg

This woman was arrested in South Carolina after she and a male accomplice committed an armed robbery in 2017. The 24-year-old robbed a 25-year-old man, smashed his phone and threatened him. The SWAT team located her and the man who was with her in a South Carolina home soon after.

Once her mugshot hit the internet, people were shocked at the appearance of her black eyes. This may be due to eyeball tattooing, a procedure that dyes the whites of your eyes. Yikes!

He Is Ready for Whatever

smile.jpg

This guy must have come in completely confident or completely high off drugs. There are many things wrong this mugshot but let’s point to the obvious one; what is going on with his hair? Never mind the smile, he looks like a mad scientist who just captured his enemy.

He looks like he smells gasoline for fun. He looks like someone just tickled his foot. He looks like he just said, “come here, let me whisper in your ear”. He looks like a number of things but in his right mind is not one. Whoever let him do that to his hair should be apprehended as well.

Sorry for Your Face

Sorry for Your Face

This is clearly a case of sunburn gone wrong. This guy must have had on one huge hat prior to committing his crime. He probably thought he was going to get away with it and no one was going to be able to see this but boy was he wrong. The whole world can now see this.

It’s almost as if maybe his face is just naturally red and that light spot on his head is just a glare from the flash from the mugshot. Because that is one gnarly tan to have on your forehead. He should be prepared to be the laughing stock once he gets inside.

At Least He Warned Us

At Least He Warned Us

His name is David Durham and he likes to keep it real. His crime: repeatedly breaking into cars. Now when he was taken in, he had on this ironic shirt. Now, we all know that is a fact that David Durham does dumb things and this mug shot couldn’t be any more perfect.

If any other civilian were to parade around in this shirt, should we be skeptical of said person? What if they are about to commit a crime like Durham did. Maybe we just give anyone wearing this shirt the benefit of the doubt that they just think it’s funny and they actually live up to the word.

Summoning Dark Forces

Summoning Dark Forces

Now for all you religious folks out there, this is somebody you wouldn’t want to be friends with unless you are trying to save him. His eyes are rolling to the back of his head as the picture is being taken! His tattoos say it all if we’re being honest.

This guy needs saving and a lawyer. He probably has no fear over what is about to happen to him while he’s locked up or whatever his charges are. Like the header says, he is probably trying to summon dark forces to aid him while he is going through this.

Jeremy Meeks

Jeremy Meeks

Moving on to someone whose mugshot actually gained them fame. Jeremy Meeks’ mugshot circulated the web in 2014 and immediately shot to fame after women all over the world swooned over his stunning good looks. Meeks is a felon who was arrested for illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded firearm in public and criminal street gang activity, but who’s counting?

His sudden fame gained him a modeling contract and agent. He has only done shoots from his house for now, but that will likely change as he just got off house arrest. See where good looks can get you?

Pretty Pout

Pretty Pout

This gorgeous gal was arrested, but that didn’t stop her from looking absolutely stunning. Who knows what this non-law-abiding citizen was arrested for, but who cares? With her beautiful green eyes and sultry pout, it seems as though it would be easy enough to let her off any charge.

Well, we wouldn’t say any charge but maybe she can end up like our previous mugshot victim and become a model because she has the looks for it. Hopefully, her crime was not that serious and she’ll be out in no time so she can lead a normal life and not a life of crime.

Model-Worthy Mugshot

Model-Worthy Mugshot

This beautiful lady has features akin to a real model. Perhaps that is her occupation when she isn’t sitting in a jail cell. She is in possession of beautiful hair, eyes, and lips on a well-structured face. Clearly, she wasn’t exhibiting model behavior this day. Again, with looks that could kill, who could really blame her for behaving badly?

She probably thought she could get away with anything. Similar to a child who figured out that they are too young to really get disciplined so they go all out on the causing trouble. But it did not work for her.

Dreamy-Eyed Criminal

Dreamy-Eyed Criminal

This handsome guy was arrested for grand theft and burglary of an unoccupied structure. Perhaps he should try to follow in Jeremy Meeks’ footsteps and foray his criminal career in favor of becoming a model. It seems like it would be much more lucrative. Good looks don’t get you everything.

The sad part is that some people have to resort to thievery for survival because of their circumstances and then there are other who commit the crimes for no good reason at all. We wonder what category he fell into for his malicious acts he committed.

Wait…Santa!

Wait…Santa!

Well if it isn’t Saint Nick; what on Earth could he have possibly done? Wait, this is Fidel Gutierrez and he is on this list for selling drugs to an undercover cop. If only he was a nice like his look-a-like instead of making the naughty list.

Keep your head up, Fidel! We sonder if the undercover cop got a kick out of this Santa look-a-like or if he made a joke as he made his bust. Fidel looks so defeated in his picture. He probably wishes Santa was real but he would for sure be getting coal.

Angelic Criminal

Angelic Criminal

Who could find a face like this guilty? Maybe it’s just his blonde hair billowing around his face, but it’s hard to believe a face like could be guilty of a crime. He was arrested for theft, obstructing an officer without violence, and trespassing. Let’s hope he has a change of heart.

Those crimes don’t seem as harsh as some of the others on this list but that doesn’t let him off the hook. Depending on where he was trespassing and what he stole, this guy could be facing some serious time for his actions. That’s probably why he looks half-way petrified in his picture.

The Tattooed Handsome

The Tattooed Handsome

This guy would have once been considered one of the most handsome of the bunch. But that was before he decided to tattoo his face. Is he in some kind of clown gang, a demented circus troupe, or just a gigolo? He was arrested for disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing. Looks like he’s going back to jail to get some more tattoos.

He could have been running alongside the Joker fake from the first page as one his henchmen to complete the demonstration. That would actually make more sense than him getting those clown tattoos out of pure desire.

The Head Injury

The Head Injury

This is a rather famous mugshot that has circulated the internet for some time now. Obviously, this guy suffered a massive head injury at some point in his life. This picture just brings up so many questions: How much of his brain is missing? How can one function with that much of their brain missing? And what did they do to get arrested? Also, why would he even draw more attention to himself?

The fact that he’s missing some of his brains could be an excuse as to why he even committed a crime.It just looks like he is in constant pain. No more hats for this guy, at least he can evade a headbutt.

The Half-Face

The Half-Face

Where to begin? It’s hard to tell exactly what is going on here, but this guy definitely looks similar to Will Forte’s character on the show The Last Man on Earth. Again, just a lot of questions are brought up. Why the half shave? Did he lose a bet? Was he in the middle of shaving when the police barged in? Inquiring minds want to know.

Being in the middle of a shave makes the most sense, but if you know someone who has actually done this in real life than it doesn’t seem that odd. People who do such things are capable of anything. From high success to crime, they can do it.

The Literal Beauty Queen

The Literal Beauty Queen

This mugshot is of former Ms. Arizona, Kumari Fulbright. She was also a law student at Arizona State University at some point but dropped out. She was arrested for having her ex-boyfriend kidnapped and tortured. She ultimately ended up serving some jail time for her crime. Certainly not beauty queen behavior, yikes!

What could he have done to her that was so bad that he deserved to be tortured. We know heartbreak can be tough but wow, that is taking it to the next level and then some. We bet he is glad he left that situation alone even though she was once a beauty queen.

Mustache Head

Mustache Head

This guy seems to have misplaced his mustache right on the top of his head. This hairstyle was popular at some point in the ’90s, but there is no reason for it to still be popping up.

What use is a tiny bit of hair on the top of your head anyway? Why not go all the way and shave it all? We may never know Mr. Mustache Head’s reasoning but we can only hope his hairstyle choices have elevated since then. We also hope that the inmates made fun of him for his odd hair choice.

Committed Tattooer

Committed Tattooer

This poor gentleman appears to be having a very bad day. However, one thing he has going for him is his major commitment to tattoos. He has some kind of winged creature tattooed on his bald head, what appears to be a swastika under his right eye, and possibly an eye patch around his left eye. If his tattoos symbolize anything, it’s definitely the commitment level to facial tattoos.

At his age, he probably does not care that he has all those tattoos and wants to get more as soon as he gets out! Who wants to bet?

Would You Mess With This Carjacker?

Would You Mess With This Carjacker?

This guy has redrum tattooed across his head. When he looks in the mirror it reads murder. And just look at the way he is mugging in his mug shot, would you mess with him? He was caught carjacking a 68-year-old woman in a grocery parking lot.

We guess he was thinking she was an easy target but maybe try picking on someone your own size with a tattoo like that on your forehead. And if makes a scowl like that, don’t you think he would be more intimidating. Better luck next time, big fella.

Interesting Pose…

Interesting Pose…

What, does he think he is still at the Frat house? Why is his tongue partially out and his shirt off? From the looks of it, it seems like he used to go to the gym a lot so maybe when he gets in the slammer not that many people will mess with him. Was he prepping for this moment?

Or perhaps he is just completely high off some type of drug. If you look closely, his eyes appear to have some redness to them so him not being sober is completely possible. Still, that is no excuse for whatever he did.

I Am the Law!

I Am the Law!

Does this photo even really need a caption? The t-shirt says it all, doesn’t it? How do you think this police stop went? Either this is one of the most ironic police stops of all time or he has an amazing sense of humor.

Hopefully, the law was on his side and he didn’t end up with too much of a penalty. And by the looks of his pose, he is trying to enforce what his shirt says by all means. He may be elderly but he does look like he can dish out some pain.

Go to Jail!

Go to Jail!

Here’s another one from the t-shirt files. Imagine his day, innocently choosing to wear his favorite board game t-shirt never knowing that by the end of the day he would (probably drunkenly) have his picture taken while being laughed at by the whole police station. Another case of too good to be true irony.

This is like an episode out of Seinfeld and Jerry warns George not to wear the shirt because he could really go to jail. George doesn’t listen and the last scene of the episode is George taking a mugshot in the shirt.

Little Old Lady

Little Old Lady

This sweet little old lady looks like she stepped right out of the “big bad wolf” fairy tale. She looks like the sweet and innocent little old lady, but in this fairy tale, she might be closer to the wolf, than the grandma character. You never can judge a book by its cover.

What could she have done? Whatever it was, we’re sure she didn’t hurt anyone unless she, in fact, did hurt someone but that would be the last option to cross anyone’s mind. Would you let this elderly lady harm you in any way unless she had some type of weapon?

Lots O’Hair

Lots O’Hair

This lady with lots of hair looks like the type of woman who would yell at you and tell you you’re being too loud. She looks kind of like a deranged librarian of sorts. Whatever she was arrested for, one thing is for sure, she is not having a good day.

By the looks of the picture, she could potentially be on drugs too. She looks surprised to be there like she doesn’t belong. Almost as if what she did wasn’t bad enough for her to be tossed in the slammer. What do you think she did?

The Patriot

The Patriot

This patriotic criminal was arrested with the American flag emblazoned across his face. Kind of ironic when individuals are so proud to be from their country yet they refuse to honor the laws of said country, don’t you think?

Perhaps he got arrested defending the flag’s honor, or maybe he just got drunk. Or maybe, he got dared to do that to his face and then commit a crime to see if the cops would take it a bit easier on him with the punishment. All of those possibilities are plausible but hey, you be the judge.

The Pointer

The Pointer

This guy’s mugshot looks like he’s saying “You better believe it!” or “How you doin’?” Either way, it makes for one pretty funny mugshot. It would be amazing if the arresting officers were able to keep themselves from laughing while booking this guy. Maybe he will stop breaking the law, and take his comedy act on the road.

Or even better, he could perform some stand-up while he’s locked up for his fellow prisoners. That is sure to gain him some friends on the inside. If his jokes are no good then that might be detrimental to him so he had better hope he can produce some laughs out there.

The Painted Lady

The Painted Lady

This eyebrow aficionado clearly has committed at least one crime evident by her mugshot. Those brows! One might say to never judge a book by its cover. But, well that’s hard to do when a person has bad eyebrows.

Do you think they are tattooed or just makeup? In either case, here is some advice: don’t ever let anyone with bad eyebrows tell you how to live your life because clearly, they do not know how to live theirs. Another thing, the way she is smirking kind of says, she wanted to be in this position.

The Crazy Expression

The Crazy Expression

It’s hard to tell exactly what is going through this lady’s mind, but one this is for sure she had one crazy ride! The wide-eyed expression and her mouth pursed like she is either about to spit or shout. It’s going to be a long night for her cell mate.

She also looks like a crazy cat lady who was trying to warn the guards that she needed to get back home so she could feed her cats. Her one phone call is going to be to someone who has a key to her place so that they could go and feed her precious cats!

The Teeth

The Teeth

This is just a sad mugshot. This gentleman literally looks like he is wearing a pair of those fake teeth you get from a Halloween store. Unfortunately for this individual, this is his real life. How different do you think his life would be if he didn’t have those teeth?

Talk about struggle, biting an apple must be one of the things he avoids with teeth like that. We don’t think any type of dental work can save those bad boys. This guy is done as far as good teeth go for the rest of his life. He had better hope some new technology comes out that can save this man.

The Modification Mug

The Modification Mug

This guy probably made quite the introduction when he walked into the police station. Do you think he frightened the other jail mates? This guy had horns implanted into his head. Makes tattoos on the face seem kind of tame in comparison, doesn’t it? It definitely makes you wonder what he was arrested for.

He could have been trying to have a seance and got arrested for disturbing the peace. Why else would someone want horns put into their head unless they were trying to communicate with dark forces? Book him and make sure you keep him there until he gets his stuff together.

The Udderly Wonderful

The Udderly Wonderful

This individual was arrested in a cow costume, complete with plastic udders. Is there any other way you would want to remember your arrest? Although he was probably arrested at a Halloween party, we have to say this outfit is utterly fantastic.

Still, this is quite embarrassing that he had to get arrested this way. We wonder what his parents thought when they came and saw him like this. We are sure he has a reasonable explanation if he was arrested on Halloween but nonetheless, you can’t help but get a laugh from this silly outfit.

Father-Son Duo

Father-Son Duo

These mugshots depict a father and son. You know what they say… families who get face tattoos together stay together. In jail, at least. You have to wonder about someone’s state of mind when they decide to have the words “Git R done” or “psycho” permanently etched onto their face. This father-of-the-year candidate is named Floyd Bebee, and his son is named Justin. They were arrested at different times in 2008. According to The Smoking Gun, one of Justin’s brothers is serving time in prison. He has a swastika tattoo, as well as the words “Time Served” and “White Pride” on his legs.

A Really Stylish Look

A Really Stylish Look

Meet Kevin Gibson. The Florida man’s mugshot went viral because of his unique hairstyle. Gibson has shaved half of his hair off, and half of his beard as well. His arrest, in April of 2016 (the day before 4/20), was for marijuana possession. This was not his first (or last) arrest for drug possession, and he sported a similarly asymmetrical look in his other mugshots. Perhaps Mr. Gibson should lay off the drugs before grooming. He’d at least be a little less noticeable to cops if he sported a more “clean cut” hairstyle.

Hickey City

Hickey City

The young man in this mugshot has apparently been having a lot of fun lately. His neck is covered from top to bottom with deep purple hickeys. Eighteen-year-old Michah Musser was arrested in Kentucky after cops found him in an abandoned building with several underage runaways. There were several empty containers of alcohol near the group when the police went in. Musser, who was the only adult in the group, was charged with third degree criminal trespassing and unlawful transaction with a minor. As far as we know, he did not comment on where he’d received all the hickeys.
