Every Friday, Riptide brings you the most eye-catching mugshots taken in Miami-Dade County in the week previous. Yes, there is some mockery of bad neck tattoos, but also adulation directed at perps who just plain-out look more badass than we ever will . This is the italicized intro to that series.
Charged with: Possession of a controlled substance.
They say you know you've made it when your look starts showing up in mug shots. Congratulations, Biebs!
Charged with: Possession of cannabis, drinking in public
Uh... you too, Hitz!
Charged with: Battery
We know you thought this was a classy operation. But it's still the internet, and if we see a hot chick we're contractually obliged to post her photos, along with the word "hottttttt". (Seven "t"'s is the industry standard.)
Charged: Carjacking, aggravated battery
Sometimes when we get really angry we say we hope you back in the next life as Pedro Jimenez. Now you know what we're talking about.
Charged with: Armed burglary, grand theft, possession of a weapon by a felon
Also, we don't usually play matchmaker, but if Pedro gets the boot, you got next dude. (P.S. The tattoo of our left says "Happy Times".)
Charged with: Strongarmed robbery
Maybe it's just the middle-aged dad in us, but we want to let our little daughter swing some plastic monkeys from those things.
Charged with: Child molestation
Hey, it's the dangers of the internet personified.
Charged with: Burglary
Mennonite basketball player... Black samurai Forrest Gump Fuck it, we're stumped.
Charged with: Aggravated Assault
Ma?! This is exactly what we're talking about: How come you're the one in the mug shot, but we're the ones who feel like we're being judged?
