- Celebrity mug shots often make their way online.
- Jussie Smollett‘s mug shot was just released by the Chicago police department.
- Stars including Armie Hammer and Lindsay Lohan have all had mug shots end up online.
Jussie Smollett’s mug shot becomes the latest in a long list of Hollywood celebrities who have had their post-arrest photos taken and shared on the internet.
“Empire” actor Smollett was arrested on charges of filing a false police report and felony disorderly conduct Thursday after turning himself in.
Smollett reported that two men attacked him and shouted homophobic and racist slurs in Chicago in January. Police initially arrested two brothers in connection with the case but let them go because they were no longer suspects.
He could face up to three years in prison.
The resulting photo is the latest addition to a vast trove of celebrity mug shots. See some of them below.
Vince Vaughn was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in 2018.
The “Wedding Crashers” actor, 48, was pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence at Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles in 2018, TMZ reported.
Vaughn and an unidentified male passenger refused to cooperate with the police and didn’t get out of the car when first asked, unnamed police sources told the gossip site.
Sergeant Tim Zins, a spokesman for the Manhattan Beach Police Department, told CNN Vaughn wasn’t “fighting with officers, but more of delaying the investigation.”
That wasn’t Vaughn’s first run-in with the police. He was arrested after a fight outside the Firebelly Lounge bar in Wilmington, North Carolina, in 2001.
Vaughn was released shortly after his arrest after posting bail.
Justin Bieber was pictured smiling in his mugshot in 2014, after the then-19-year-old was arrested on charges related to drag-racing through Miami Beach in a Lamborghini, cursing at police, and admitting to taking drugs and alcohol.
The singer posted a $US2,500 bond and was released about an hour after his court appearance.
