20 Celebrity Mugshots from Miami-Dade Jail

It's not Friday yet, but there's no such thing as too many mugshots right? Miami attracts celebrities like moths to a light bulb, but unfortunately for some of them what happens in Miami doesn't stay in Miami. Miami-Dade's jail camera, AKA the in-house Paparazzi, has caught several celebrities checking in for jail time over the years.

Rick Ross
Rozay, perhaps the world's most famous former prison guard, found himself on the other side of the bars in 2008 when he faced felony charges of gun possession and misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession.

KelisBack in 2007 singer Kelis got arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest on South Beach after yelling at two undercover cops. She ended up getting cleared of all charges. She still filed suit against the MBPD, and claimed she was was a victim of racial profiling.

Larry King
Back when he was just a local broadcaster, future CNN legend Larry King was accused of grand larceny by a business partner (rumors about the arrest still circulate involving gambling debts or, oddly, trying to peddle influence with Richard Nixon's attorney general). He ended up pleading to lesser charges of writing bad checks. He was off the air for a while, but returned to Miami airwaves a few years later.

Big Boi

One of half of Outkast, Big Boi was arrested last year at the Port of Miami after a drug sniffing dog detected viagra, ecstasy and MDMA powder on his person. The charges will be dropped if he does community service and passes drug tests.

Brooke Mueller

Does being Charlie Sheen's ex-wife make you a celebrity? We guess so. She was arrested in Miami back in 2001 on an outstanding warrant for suspicion of cocaine possession. Those charges were ultimately dropped.

Back when he was just Mr. 305 and not quite Mr. Worldwide, Pit got popped for a DUI in 2007 but ended up getting cleared of those charges.

Flo Rida
Because their music is virtually identical, it makes sense their arrest records are too. Flo Rida got arrested on DUI charges in 2011 while he was driving a Bugatti. He avoided jail, and was sent to a first time offenders program.

Jeffrey Donavon
Burn Notice star Jeffrey Donavon got arrested on DUI charges on the beach in 2009, but plead to lesser charges of reckless driving.

Jim Morrison
In perhaps Miami's most famous rock 'n' roll arrest, the Doors frontman allegedly exposed himself during a concert at the Dinner Key Auditorium. Former Governor Charlie Crist ended up giving Morrison a posthumous pardon.

Carmen Electra

Dennis Rodman
Long before Kim Kardashian's quickee marriage to an NBA player, their was the very brief union of Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman. The two got married in Las Vegas in 1998. The two divorced in April of 1999, but were apparently back together by November of '99 when they were both arrested in Miami after police received a report of a domestic disturbance.

AKA Angela Kohn, AKA that Miami rapper chick who's not Trina, got popped in 2006 for petty theft.

Trick Daddy

Back in 2007, Trick got arrested after a brawl at the strip club Tootsie's Cabaret.

Vince Shlomi
Better known as the "Shamwow Guy," Shlomi was arrested in 2009 for battery of a prostitute who he claims tried to bite his tongue off.

Mickey Rourke

Another celeb, another DUI. Rourke's 2007 arrest however was for driving drunk on a scooter.

Your least favorite pop "artist" got arrested on DUI charges in 2009, but ended up avoiding jail time.

R. Kelly
While R. Kelly's kiddy porn legal saga didn't go down in Miami, it was actually local police who ended up arresting him on 12 child pornography charges at the Grand Bay Hotel in Coconut Grove. Miami police were assisting the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Natasha Lyonne
The American Pie star's first sign of trouble came when she was arrested for a DUI on Miami Beach in 2001. What followed was a decade of drug abuse and health troubles, but she did manage to clean up her act enough to appear in American Reunion.

Elsa Patton

Marysol Patton
There's nothing quite like matching mother-daughter DUIs. Real Housewives of Miami star Marysol Patton got popped for a DUI back in January 2010, but ended up pleading to a lesser charge of reckless driving. Her mother Elsa Patton, a self-proclaimed witch, recurring character on the show, and probably the only reason it got renewed for a second season, got popped for a DUI in October of that year. While in jail, Elsa reportedly befriended a hooker and gave her $50 for a ride home.
