In general, it’s safe to assume that mugshots are meant to capture the lowest points in people’s lives. However, in a time where virtually everything is seen by the public, viral mugshots are increasingly becoming some individuals’ claim to fame. Click ahead to see some the craziest mugshots to ever hit the web…
Mekhi Alante Lucky
Mekhi Alante Lucky lived up to his last name in early 2016 when his striking mugshot made him a celebrity online. With eyes that mesmerizing, it’s almost enough to make you overlook the fact that he was caught speeding in a stolen vehicle.
It’s no secret that teens tend to like getting frisky, and Micah Musser is no exception. The 18-year-old’s distracting hickey collection drew mass attention online after Musser was charged with trespassing and an illegal transaction with a minor.
This blonde beauty’s mugshot went viral, not just due to her appearrance, but also because of the story behind it. Csapilla had mistakenly scratched “wore” instead of “whore” into the side of a friend’s car whom she suspected had been canoodling with her boyfriend. Either way, it’s still vandalism.
Fidel Gonzalez Gutierrez
Who knew Santa Claus’ real name was Fidel Gonzalez Gutierrez? Based on this mugshot (and the coinciding cocaine dealing charges), it seems as though Santa may have gotten a bit too generous with the ‘goodies’ he hands out in the off-season.
While illegally refusing to leave a hotel may not be a relatable experience, wanting to suggest that a frustrating person (in her case, the boys in blue) kiss your behind certainly is. Green’s sassy mugshot truly was made to be a meme.
Of all the convicts on this list, you’re most likely to have heard of Jeremy Meeks (aka Hot Felon). After serving his time on gang-related charges, Meeks parlayed his Internet fame into a modeling career and a relationship with billionaire heiress Chloe Green.
Ponce’s tough look isn’t just for fashion; the bad beauty had been caught cruising in a car full of gangsters, guns, and one very out-of-place infant. The severity of the charges wasn’t enough to stop online admirers from offering to pay her bail, however.
While a disorderly conduct charge is certainly nothing to brag about, a face that beautiful is. Following her 2014 arrest, Coates’ supermodel-quality shot made her an overnight sensation. She has since expressed that she doesn’t want her crime to define her career, however.
