Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Desmond Bryant was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief on Sunday, and as a result we have one of the most legendary mug shots of all time.
In case you care, Bryant allegedly went into a neighbor’s house drunk in Miami and caused a disturbance. The story is hardly as interesting as his mug shot, which there are really no words to describe.
Raiders enthusiast Victor Cotto shared the photo on Twitter on Monday afternoon and referred to the post as “McClain mugging,” which is a reference to the awesome smile linebacker Rolando McClain flashed during one of his many run-ins with the law several years ago. Personally, I’d put Bryant’s “derp” face in a class of it’s own.
Nobody should be happier than Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton, who prior to Monday gave us easily the most entertaining mug shot in recent history. That honor now belongs to Bryant, who has cemented his place in the mug shot hall of fame.

Larry Bird’s 21-year-old son Conner was arrested by Indiana University campus police Sunday for allegedly being a naughty boy.
Bird and his ex-girlfriend reportedly argued at his apartment Saturday, and he allegedly threw a cell phone at her which hit her in the wrist.
According to Inc Now, the ex-girlfriend walked to her home and says Bird was waiting there in his car when she arrived. She says she got into his car and they drove to a parking lot at Memorial Stadium where they continued to argue. The woman reportedly says she got out to walk home, and she alleges Bird chased her in his car and tried running her over. She was able to contact a campus police officer to complain. Bird was later arrested by campus police.
Bird was taken to Monroe County Jail after his arrest, according to ABC 6 in Indianapolis. He is facing charges of intimidation with a deadly weapon, battery resulting in bodily harm, criminal recklessness and possession of marijuana. The AP says he was no longer in custody as of Tuesday.

Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton is in the headlines this week, but it’s not for anything baseball-related.
Helton, who is 39 and at the end of his career, was arrested Wednesday morning nearby his home in Thornton, Colo., on suspicion of driving under the influence. His DUI is not what is captivating the minds of America; it’s the amazing mug shot that has everyone fascinated.
Just look at Helton in that shot. Face all chubby, triple chin visible. His hair is all tossed around. One collar is flipped out and the other tucked in. Not to mention he’s so messed up he can’t even open his eyes for the picture. Guy looks awful.
Ordinarily we’d scold Helton for driving drunk and putting the lives of others in danger, but that mug shot is enough to sufficiently embarrass him for his actions.
You can read his apology he provided to The Denver Post.
DUIs are no laughing matter, but Carlton Fisk’s mug shot certainly is.
The Hall of Fame catcher was arrested on Monday night on DUI charges after driving his truck into the middle of a cornfield in Illinois, police reportedly said.
New Lenox Police received a call about a car driving erratically. Officers found Fisk in a cornfield, unconscious behind the wheel of his truck. An open vodka bottle reportedly was also found in the vehicle.
Pudge refused a blood test, and his car was impounded.
Let’s get back to that mug shot. Where the heck was Fisk looking? Camera’s over here, bro. It looks like he just got baked, $hitfaced from pounding about a case of beers, and lost a fight to a garden hose and rake.
Way to make a triumphant comeback into the news, Fisk.
On Monday we shared the story of alleged tree poisoner Harvey Updyke getting arrested on terrorizing charges after threatening the staff at a Lowe’s home improvement store when he was unable to get a full refund on his lawn mower. Now we get to share with you the best part: Updyke’s new mug shot.
There he is, our devout Alabama fan, looking all hopeless and depressed. Hair looking disheveled, mustache all long and unkempt, a general “this is what my life has come to” look across his face. That, my friends, is the look of a man who know he’s about to spend the next several years of his life in prison.
Updyke later took a plea deal for poisoning Toomer’s Oaks on the Auburn campus. He will spend six months in jail.

The last time Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones got into trouble, he was mistakenly arrested because of a confusion over identities. It does not appear as if he’ll be as fortunate to avoid trouble this time.
According to reports, Jones got into an argument at the bar and when he was asked to leave, witnesses said he was uncooperative.
When police were called, Jones reportedly still refused to leave the bar.
As officers tried to arrest Jones, police said he tried to get out of his handcuffs. The report said two officers were needed to restrain him.
Pacman was one of the most notorious trouble makers in the NFL and missed the entire ’09 season because of it. He ended up signing to play in the CFL and then signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in May last year. He had avoided trouble since then, but it looks like he couldn’t go too long without having another incident. And if you have forgotten his history, this is a good starting point to catch you up. By the way, sweet neck brace, Adam.

We’ve featured some classic mug shots at LBS over the years. Former MLB player Derek Bell had a legendary one several years ago. Former Calgary Flames forward Brett Sutter looked like a pedophile in his. And running back Laurence Maroney went Busta Rhymes with his hair in his. But does anything top Brett Rogers and his mohawk from his mug shot? I think not.
Laughing over Rogers’ mug shot does not mean we find his alleged actions to be funny. Quite the opposite, in fact. As we learned from Bloody Elbow, Rogers was jailed and charged with “assault in the third degree, domestic assault by strangulation and pattern of stalking conduct — all felonies –in Dakota County. He was also charged with endangerment of a child, a gross misdameanor.”
Here are the details of what allegedly transpired. “His wife blacked out from being choked, suffered a golf ball sized wound on her face among smaller wounds. The couples daughter had tried to intervene after she saw Rogers strike her mother.”
Rogers reportedly admitted to getting in a fight with his wife after drinking, and he says he was returning force. Bro, even if you were returning force, YOU’RE A PROFESSIONAL MMA FIGHTER. You don’t fight anyone unless paid to in the ring or unless you’re defending someone’s life. Somehow I doubt punching your wife and choking her was necessary. See Brett, this is the sort of thing you should have done to Josh Barnett, not your wife.
