Justin Bieber was arrested for driving while under the influence on Thursday morning after police pulled him over for drag racing. There are plenty of entertaining elements to the story, like the fact that he was reportedly driving with a suspended license and resisted arrest by keeping his hands in his pockets. But the best part has to be the mugshot that came out of it.
The mugshot is classic Bieber, with the pop star’s pearly whites showing and his hair spiked up in ridiculous fashion. Given the way we saw him dress at a Miami Heat game, it does not surprise us at all.
Also, Bieber was supposedly driving around with DeSean Jackson’s ex-girlfriend at the time of his arrest. Come on, Chantel — you can do better than that.

Samantha Goudie, the Iowa student who was arrested for allegedly trying to get on the field during the Iowa-Northern Illinois game on Saturday, was absolutely wasted when she took her mug shot … no surprise.
As you can see on the whiteboard held by a university police officer, Goudie “refused” a blood alcohol test. Goudie later took a breathalyzer, likely in jail, where she blew the legendary .341.
Goudie has become an Internet sensation since her story went viral over the past few days. Unfortunately, she has toned it down on her “Vodka Samm” Twitter account lately, which features her flipping the double bird as her profile picture. She even just made her Twitter account private.
Maybe Sam’s becoming a little uncomfortable with her newfound fame. Or maybe she’s just in the middle of a bender.

As far as WAGs go, Anna Benson appears to be past her prime. Not only does it look like she’s lost her fastball, but she also has gone completely bonkers.
The ex-wife of former New York Mets pitcher Kris Benson was arrested Monday and booked on four counts, including two felony charges, for allegedly running up into her ex’s house carrying a gun and metal baton. She also reportedly was strapped with a bulletproof vest at the time of her intrusion.
The Bensons filed for divorce last year and Anna was recently ordered to vacate their marital home. She allegedly went to Kris’ home on Sunday night to get some money from him, and she was toting the gun and baton.
According to TMZ, Anna has been charged with two counts of felony aggravated assault with a weapon, one count of criminal trespass, and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Benson is one of the most well known baseball WAGs of all time. She was a cast member on VH1’s Baseball Wives and notoriously swung a dildo at Chuck Knoblauch’s then wife Cheri. She also gained notoriety in New York when she said she would sleep with the entire Mets team if she ever caught her husband cheating on her. Incidentally, Kris filed for divorce last year after Anna caught him cheating. We’re still waiting for her to sleep with all the Mets, but something tells us the players might not be too interested.
In case you forgot, here’s what Benson looked like in her youthful modeling days:
Titus Young found out that setting records in the NFL is not easy, so he decided to try making history off the field. The former Detroit Lions wide receiver was arrested twice in less than a 15-hour span on Sunday, a Riverside, Calif., public information officer told Larry Brown Sports.
Young was arrested around 12:01 a.m. Sunday morning by a Moreno Valley Police Department officer who was conducting a traffic stop. The officer says he was waiting in a left turn lane getting ready to turn when a black Mustang came up from behind and passed him on his left. The Mustang, which was being drive by Young, went against oncoming traffic before turning left.
The officer conducted a traffic stop and arrested Young on suspicion of DUI. The former Lion was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center and was cited and released after signing a promise to appear in court.
Then, later that day, Young was arrested again.
Young was arrested a second time around 2:22 p.m. for climbing over the fence of the towing company to try retrieving his car. He was arrested for burglary.
The DUI is a misdemeanor and the burglary charge is a felony.
Young was a second-round pick of the Lions in 2011, but he was released by the team after the season. The St. Louis Rams picked him up off waivers but released him nine days later. Young is currently a free agent.
Young was sent home from the Lions’ organized team activities last year after punching a teammate. He headbutted an opponent in Week 1, was sent home for the Thanksgiving game for sabotaging his team in the week before by intentionally lining up in the wrong spot.
We’re guessing Young’s days in the NFL are over.
Details of Young’s arrests were first reported by the Oakland Press.
Since he had two booking photos, we have posted the mug shots below for you to compare. The DUI one is on the left, while the burglary one is on the right:
Otis Nixon spent 17 seasons in Major League Baseball and stole a ton of bases. The speedster from North Carolina had some very good years during the prime of his career in the 1990s, but he looks like he would fall apart if he tried to run around the base paths these days.
The 54-year-old Nixon was arrested over the weekend in Cherokee County, leading to the terrifying mug shot you see above. According to a police report obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, his vehicle was stopped early Saturday morning and officers discovered he had a crack pipe on him and a small rock substance that was believed to be crack cocaine.
“Otis admitted to me that the substance was crack cocaine but it didn’t belong to him,” an officer wrote in the report. “Otis said the crack cocaine and the pipe belonged to his son.”
Police administered a field sobriety test and said that Nixon did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, although it appears obvious he was unable to figure out where the camera was when he was being booked at the station. Investigators reportedly also found an additional crack pipe, more crack rocks and a plastic bag containing suspected cocaine residue on the floor of the truck. Nixon said the drugs and pipe belonged to his son.
Where do you rank this on our growing list of fantastic mug shots, all of which can be seen here? There’s some pretty good ones there, but Smith definitely wins the award for washed-up athlete who looks the most like a zombie.

Eastern Illinois RB Bobby Pettis has hilarious mug shot after allegedy robbing a Jimmy John’s delivery driver
Eastern Illinois running back Bobby Pettis has yet to make his presence felt on the field, but that has never stopped an athlete from providing us with tremendous mug shot material. According to the Charleston Illinois Police Department’s Facebook page, Pettis was arrested early Friday morning after allegedly robbing a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop driver at knifepoint.
The driver reportedly said he was delivering a sandwich when a man approached him from behind and pressed what he believed to be a knife into his side, demanding that he hand over whatever cash he had on him. The 21-year-old running back, who sat out the 2012 season after transferring from a Divison-2 school, was placed in county jail pending a court appearance.
And as you can see, he left us with yet another tremendous mug shot. If not for Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Desmond Bryant’s epic mug shot, we would be able to give Pettis’ “where the hell am I?” look a lot more credit. Hopefully St. Louis Rams running back Terrance Ganaway takes notice — working in the Jimmy John’s kitchen may be safe, but life as a delivery driver can get hairy.

The old “I thought it was my house” story has made a comeback. Scott Timmins of the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage reportedly went down that road early Monday morning, as San Antonio television station KENS reported that the 23-year-old broke into a family’s home after leaving a bar and took a seat on the couch.
Homeowner Benjamin Garza, who was not home at the time, was none too pleased. His three children and wife were in the house alone. Garza said his wife discovered Timmons on the couch and asked him who he was, to which he responded, “Don’t worry about that.”
“He was yelling, ‘What are you doing in my house,'” Garza told KENS. “My wife said, ‘You need to get the hell out of here.'”
Garza said his wife called 911 and then him. When he finally met Timmins face-to-face, he let him know how fortunate he was that the man of the house was not home when he decided to come in uninvited.
“You’re lucky I wasn’t here because I would’ve put a bullet between your eyes and it would’ve been over for you,” Garza said he told Timmins. “My first instinct was to beat the hell out of him. He needs to pay for what he did, traumatizing my family like that.”
The police report stated that Timmins was so heavily intoxicated that he was barely able to stand and did not remember how he got into Garza’s home. According to the report, he did admit that he had been out drinking with some teammates, but added that he thought he was in his own home. Timmins has been charged with criminal trespass.
Hey, at least he thought it was his own house. That’s a better explanation than the one this guy gave when he broke into an MLB general manager’s home November 2011.
