20 Best Athlete Mugshots
Best Athlete Mugshots
The life of a professional athlete is glamorous and riveting. To be involved in a sport year round and get paid millions of dollars to suit up is a dream come true. And yes, I am aware that not all athletes get paid millions of dollars to play. However, they at least get paid tens of thousands of dollars to be under contract, which is still good enough. Even though these athletes hit the jackpot, sometimes their fame and fortunate can’t keep them from getting in trouble with the law.
Whether it is assault, suspicion of drunken driving, robbery, drug possession or even murder, professional athletes seem to find themselves in unusual predicaments. The reality is these crimes occur every day throughout the United States as well as the world. Unfortunately, the athletes have to deal with the public scrutiny because their face is constantly in the public. Not to mention, their mugshots become public record.
No one looks flattering in a mugshot, which is an informal term for a booking photograph at a police station. Typically, the photographic portrait is taken at a time where a person is intoxicated, under the influence of drugs or just had the worst night of their life. For that reason, the last thing any person wants is a camera shoved in their face. Although, I do find it rather humorous when athletes are smiling in the police photograph as if they are taking a picture with an adoring fan.
