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.
Charges: Trespassing and Giving a False Name
We just put in a call, and no, there were no ceiling collapses at the booking center this week.
Charges: Battery, Cannabis Possession, and Disorderly Conduct
Remember that guy who used to host Talk Soup in the '90s and the woman from What Not to Wear, who both have naturally gray patches in their hair? Well, if you've ever wondered if that can affect facial hair, here's your answer.
Charges: Assault with a Deadly Weapon
T.I. was clearly thinking of this dude when he rhymed, "Rubber band man / Wild as the Taliban / 9 in my right / 45 in my other hand."
Usually facial tattoos are a one-way ticket to Mugshots Friday glory, but we're still debating whether those eyebrows count. Better to be safe than sorry.
Charges: Aggravated Assault and Grand Theft Third Degree
See, now this is more of a cut-and-dried case.
OK, actually, straight up, this is just kind of beautiful to look at.
