Celebrity mugshots: the bad, ugly and disturbingly good

Cape Town - Hollywood’s not only home to squeaky-clean stars. From shocking DUIs to domestic violence, plenty of celebs have found themselves on the wrong side of the law.

And what would a high-profile arrest be without that awkward police picture? We take a look at a few famous troublemakers’ mugshots.

1. Bill Cosby

This mug shot was taken in 2015 right after The Cosby Show star was shockingly arrested and charged with drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004.

2. Mischa Barton

This former OC star’s mugshot was taken in 2007 right after being nabbed and charged with drunk driving in Los Angeles.

3. Charlie Sheen

Actor Charlie Sheen was arrested in 2009 on charges of domestic violence and felony assault. The Two-and-a-Half Men star posted this mugshot just before appearing in front of the district court.

4. Ne-Yo

The Let Me Love You singer was arrested and charged with reckless driving and driving without a license back in 2008. The So Sick crooner looked pretty dejected in his above mugshot – why wouldn’t he be though?

5. Michelle Rodriquez

This Fast and the Furious bombshell was booked into the Los Angeles County Jail after failing to complete her community service and alcohol monitoring probation terms.

6. Akon

The rapper opted for a rather preppy look after being charged with endangering the welfare of a child after tossing a 15-year-old fan off the stage.

7. Mike Tyson

This ex-heavy weight boxing champion was charged with a criminal damage misdemeanor. Mike jumped on the hood of a stranger’s car, causing damage worth more than R19 000.
