Every Friday, Riptide brings you the most eye-catching mugshots taken the previous week in Miami-Dade County. Yes, there is some mockery of bad neck tattoos, but also adulation directed at perps who just plain look more badass than we ever will. This is the italicized intro to that series.

Don't think for a second that we're denigrating beards. Without a beard, for example, this fellow would look like the Fat Cop Dad from Family Matters. With it, he looks like... Well, he looks like a Super Mario Bros. Goomba.

Charged with: Possession of ecstasy
Outkast has always kind of had a Goodwill Hunting Ben-Affleck-and-Matt-Damon kind of thing where you try to figure out which one is really the genius. At first, of course, you bet on Andre 3000, because of his pants. But then they split up and Andre's own music starts seeming a little bit shallow and he makes an animated series on the Cartoon Network, and Big Boi keeps being amazing and then he gets caught as a 46-year-old man with ecstasy on a cruise ship and it clicks: Ah-ha! All this time, the little unassuming one was the Roy to his Siegfried!
