Snot-Nosed Man Attempted to Abduct Little Girl at Miami Airport, Cops Say

Regular readers of Mugshots Friday will note that bloodied faces aren't all that uncommon in Miami-Dade mug shots. Rarely, however, do we see other bodily fluids make cameos. Well, that changed today when Anthony Joseph Calvanese III, 24, was booked into jail for allegedly attempting to abduct a little girl from Miami International Airport and took a mug shot that was, well, rather snot-nosed.

According to CBS Miami, Calvanese grabbed a young girl who was standing next to an exit and yelled, "You belong to me, and you're coming with me." He then tried to pull the girl with him toward the terminal.

The girl started screaming, and her family members intervened. Calvanese then let go and ran off.

Police later caught up with him, and family members ID'ed him as the would-be abductor.

As for the whole nose situation, well, that was not clarified. Do they not have tissues down at the booking station?
