I love celebrity mug shots. They're either horrifying or surprisingly adorable most of the time. In honor of the arrests of Josh Brolin, Jeffrey Wright and a bunch of the crew of the Oliver Stone film 'W', I thought I'd post some of the more memorable mug shots in recent years.
Starting with my favorite, The Beef. Arrested for criminal trespassing in a Walgreens.
Macaulay Culkin, arrested in 2004 for possession of pot.
Lindsay Lohan's first mug shot, from her July 2007 arrest for drunk driving and cocaine possession is much cuter than her second, from November 2007, which was taken when she served her time for the July arrest.
Robert Downey Jr.'s 1999 shot, arrested for drug possession.
And his 2001 mug shot, when he was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance.
Nicole Richie looked really cute in her 2006 mug shot, despite having just been arrested for a DUI.
Vince Vaughn was arrested in 2001 for fighting in public, in North Carolina.
Matthew McConaughey's mug shot isn't as famous as what he was arrested for: possession of pot and violating the Austin city noise ordinance while he was playing his bongos naked in his house.
Everyone remembers Hugh Grant's 1995 arrest for being caught with a hooker.
Cynthia Watros and Michelle Rodriguez were both arrested on the same night in Honolulu for drunk driving after leaving a Lost-related event. Both were conveniently written out of the show shortly after.
Jack White was arrested in 2003 for assault.
Mel Gibson's famous mug shot from his even more famous DUI in which he yelled racial and anti-semitical slurs at the officer.
Nick Nolte's highly memorable mug shot from 2002 for a DUI.
Keifer Sutherland was arrested for a DUI in 2007; this mug shot was from when he turned himself in to serve his time.
And how could anyone forget Paul Reubens' mug shot from 1991, when he was arrested for indecent exposure in a porn theater?
