Every Friday, Riptide brings you the most eye-catching mugshots taken the previous week (or thereabouts) 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.
Mugshots Friday is often accused of featuring plenty of hottttttt chicks (seven "T"s, industry standard) but not enough hottttttt dudes. It's your week, ladies. Straight men, you might as well click out of your browser right now. To qualify for this special Beefcake Edition MF, our steamy perps had to a) have Jesus hair b) be naked c) be looking especially GQ or d) just have that certain je ne sais quoi to make our readers throw their panties at the computer screen. Take it away studs!
