2. Mel Gibson
Mel Gibson had this mugshot taken after being arrested for a drink driving charge in 2006. He was also alleged to have made anti-semitic comments to a policeman during the arrest, which he has since apologised for.
3. Vanilla Ice

4. Hugh Grant
Hugh Grant was arrested back in 1995 for ‘lewd behaviour.’ The leading man had been caught having sex in his car in LA, which led to this very unflattering mugshot.
5. Justin Bieber
Don’t mistake that winning smile, this is a mugshot! Bieber was arrested in 2014 for drag racing while allegedly under the influence of alcohol, marijuana and prescription drugs.
6. Reese Witherspoon
Who’d have thought Reese Witherspoon would make this list? She was arrested in 2013 for disorderly conduct, but don’t worry, she was prepared represent herself in court. After all, she is Legally Blonde!
British comedian Justin Lee Collins was arrested in 2012 following allegations of harassment and fear of violence towards his ex girlfriend.

10. Lindsay Lohan
Mean Girl turned bad girl Lindsay Lohan was arrested in 2010 after failing a mandatory drugs test.
11. Dustin Diamond
Dustin Diamond has come a long way from his role as geeky teenager Screech in Saved By The Bell! He was arrested in 2014 for allegedly stabbing a man in a bar fight.
12. 50 Cent
This mug shot is from the first of 50 Cent’s two arrests, this one occurring in 1994. He spent 8 months in prison for drugs charges and was arrested a second time in 2003 after guns were found in his car.
13. Shia LeBeouf
This mugshot was taken in 2015 after Transformers star Shia was arrested for public intoxication. He had been spotted jaywalking and acting strangely when he was picked up by police and has received treatment for alcoholism.
14. Macaulay Culkin
He doesn’t look much like the cute little boy from Home Alone here, does he? Macaulay Culkin was arrested in 2004 after police stopped his friends car and found him in possession of Xanax, marijuana and sleeping pills.
15. Bill Gates
The Microsoft millionaire was arrested not once but twice in the 1970’s! The first time he was arrested was in 1975 for speeding and driving without a license, the second time (when this mugshot was taken) was in 1977 when he had been brought in for careless driving. Maybe he should put all of his technological efforts behind a self driving car!
