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.

Arrested: 3/21

Charged with: Trespassing, possession of cocaine

Either this guy got a bump off before he was arrested, or somebody just told him Blossom died.

Arrested: 3/20

Charged with: Leaving scene of crash

We've learned something today: Tattooed teardrops usually make you look badass, but if you have a neck brace on, they just make you look... sad.

Arrested: 3/21

Charged with: Petty theft

Is this dude wearing a toupee, or is his head where toupees are grown?

Arrested: 3/16

Charged with: Grand theft, insurance claims, organized fraud

Hey, your t-shirt owes me $500. I was drunk! Why would the dealer let me split tens?

Arrested: 3/18

Charged with: Disorderly conduct

We were going to congratulate this guy on having a real don't-give-a-shit-it-just-kind-of-happened fauxhawk in this horrible era of it being acceptable for businessmen and athletes to have mohawks and fauxhawks... but then we saw on his Myspace that he had black-and-red checkers on his hair. Why?!

Arrested: 3/20

Charged with: Resisting officer, disorderly conduct, battery on a police officer

Hey, cheer up-- at least you're the hottttttt chick on Mugshots Friday. No, not helping?

Arrested: 3/19

Charged with: Burglary, child neglect, assault, stalking

We like it. It's very Hood Bride of Frankenstein.

Arrested: 3/16

Charged with: Disorderly conduct

Ow, dude, your face just punched my face.
