The life of a celebrity is not all glitz and glamour as some people may believe. They constantly like to remind everyone that just because they are public figures doesn't mean they are perfect. No need of reminding, though. Most regular folk know just how regular celebrities can be, especially when they falter on the wrong side of the law. Celebrities make mistakes and they get in trouble with law enforcement what almost seems like clock work these days. Perhaps it's because they know their celebrity status can get them out of trouble?
As rich and famous as they may be, there is no eluding the authorities if you have violated the law. Some celebrities like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are known as bad girls and were kept relevant for years because they kept getting in trouble with the law.
However, these celebrities appear to have kept their cool during booking and managed to make their mugshot look like a head shot for their portfolio. Call them stupid all you want, but people like Hilton, Richie, and even Lindsay Lohan are smart enough to know that there is no such thing as bad publicity. Heck, maybe that's why they got into so much trouble with the law in the last decade.
Below is a list of the top celebrities with the most photogenic mugshots around. These celebrities look so good that it makes you wonder if they had their makeup artist with them prior to the arrest.
11 Michelle Rodriguez - DUI
The fierce and sexy Michelle Rodriguez from the Fast and Furious franchise had a little run-in with the law back in her Lost days. In April of 2006, Rodriguez was charged for violating her probation when she was pulled over in Kaneohe, Hawaii, in 2005 for driving under the influence. The starlet was on a 36-month probation that was issued to her after another DUI and hit-and-run incident from 2003 in the state of California.
10 Carmen Electra - Domestic Violence
In 1999, former Baywatch star Carmen Electra was arrested alongside her now ex-husband Dennis Rodman for domestic violence. Both made claims to local authorities that the other had hit them. The divorced couple was staying at a Miami Beach Hotel when there were reports of the two getting loud and hostile.
9 Lindsay Lohan - Reckless Driving
Lindsay Lohan has been a star since she was a child. We first met the red-headed, freckled, starry-eyed child in the movie The Parent Trap. Since then, Lohan starred in a series of movies that propelled her to stardom. Her fame only grew after she had the starring role in the 2004 smash-hit movie Mean Girls. The movie was well received by audiences and critics everywhere and it was expected that Lohan would become the next big thing in Hollywood.
8 Khloe Kardashian - DUI
The Kardashians are pretty much everywhere these days and it is almost impossible to turn on the television without hearing about them. So it comes with no surprise to learn that a Kardashian has a criminal record. Khloe Kardashian was arrested for driving under the influence in March of 2007 and sentenced to 30 days behind bars. Strangely, she served only 3 hours due to “over-crowding.”
7 Bruno Mars - Cocaine Possession
The “Lazy Song” singer was arrested in Las Vegas in 2010 for narcotics possession. Bruno Mars was caught snorting cocaine in the bathroom of the Hard Rock Casino and Café. The singer was charged with felony cocaine possession and was placed on a year probation. He was in possession of 2.6 grams of cocaine. That's a lot of cocaine. Apparently he told Vegas Police it was his first time using the drug even though it was a lie.
"I don't know where that came from. I was really intoxicated. I was really drunk," Mars told GQ magazine in 2013. "So a lot of that is a big blur, and I try every day to forget and keep pushing."
6 Chace Crawford - Marijuana Possession
Chace Crawford from Gossip Girl fame was arrested in 2010 in Plano, Texas for the possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana. It's not a lot, but enought for the local authorities to arrest Crawford and his friend when the vehicle they were in was spotted in the parking lot of a local pub.
5 Shia LeBeouf - DUI
Shia LeBeouf was recently arrested for public intoxication outside of a bar in Austin, Texas. Coincidently this is not the ex-Disney star’s first alcohol-related misdemeanor. In July of 2008, LeBeouf was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after his pickup hit another car in West Hollywood.
4 Reese Witherspoon - Disorderly Conduct
It’s hard to believe that the wholesome-looking Reese Witherspoon would ever get herself arrested, but even the Legally Blonde star let her inhibitions loose when her husband, Jim Toth, was caught driving after a night of drinking in 2013. Toth, a Hollywood agent was being detained for driving under the influence and it was then that Witherspoon decided to intervene.
3 Nicole Richie - Possession Of Heroin
Although Nicole Richie is now a mother of two and has a successful clothing line, the fashion designer has a criminal past. In February of 2003, Nicole Richie was arrested for possession of heroin and driving on a revoked license. This is when the Simple Life star had her not-so-proud, yet glamorous mugshot where the diva only looks up at the camera with a no-regret smile on her face.
2 Paris Hilton - Possession of Cocaine
Reality TV star Paris Hilton became a starlet after her infamous sex tape “A Night in Paris,” was leaked. Since then Paris has starred in her own television series, released a line of perfumes, had a Top-40 single. But what made her truly relevant was her party-girl attitude. From 2007-2010, she was constantly on the tabloids for getting drunk and causing a scene. Her bad-girl behavior rubbed off on many of her friends like Lindsay Lohan and her ex-best friend Nicole Richie, but neither girl was ever able to have a mugshot as glamorous as Paris’.
1 Justin Bieber - Drag Racing While Drunk
Justin Bieber went from Internet sensation to world star practically overnight. By 2009, the teen was a multi-platinum singer, with a world tour and millions to his name. After living years in poverty and quickly becoming one of the world’s biggest stars in the world, it’s no surprise that fame got to his head. The young Canadian pop star was arrested in early 2014 in Florida after he was caught drag racing down a residential area. He was 19 during the time of his arrest and had a blood alcohol level of .04, but since he was underage it counted as a DUI; his license, already expired, was suspended.
What made the Beib’s arrest so famous was his attitude through it all. The young star was charged with resisting arrest after he cussed out the arresting officer. It’s pretty obvious that the criminal offense did not phase the star and he seems rather amused by the whole situation. A DUI is usually supposed to be shameful and will teach the importance of driving sober, but not him - he looks proud in his mugshot.
