Mugshots of the Week

Maricopa County Mugshots of the Week: Unusual Suspects

At the end of the week, we bring you a roundup of visitors to the desert's own Fourth Avenue Jail. To be considered for our Maricopa County mugshots of the week, get arrested, strike a pose, and we'll take care of the rest.

This week, you may notice something's a little off about our alleged offenders. There are awkward tattoos, bad hair days, and maybe a connection to the royal dynasty of North Korea. You'll see what we mean. Enjoy.


Charges: Child abuse, assault
Height: 5'9", Weight: 143 pounds, Hair color: Ketchup and mustard


Charges: Disorderly conduct
Looking at this fellow's chest, it appears that either The Hills Have Eyes is a documentary about this guy's family, or he ought to demand a refund from that tattoo "artist."


Charges: Marijuana possession
It's dangerous to speculate on what could smell so bad that it makes a man's eye glisten, but it looks like someone within five feet of this guy just shit his shorts.


Charges: Weapons violation, control of stolen property
Giving this guy the benefit of the doubt, maybe he's really into skiing. Perhaps, just perhaps, getting a ski mask tattooed to the front of his neck wasn't the greatest way to show it.


Charges: Interfering with a judicial proceeding
"Fuck it." -- Mugshot camera operator


Charges: Aggravated assault

Not too many men get into a bout of fisticuffs with Davy Jones and live to tell the tale.


Charges: Transportation theft
Did you hear about the scarecrow that won a Nobel Prize for being outstanding in his field?


Charges: License plate violation
Here's the thing, grumpy pants. No matter how much hair you have on the side of your head, and no matter how long you let the six hairs on top of the head grow, the rest ain't comin' back, man. A comb probably wouldn't be deadly, either.


Charges: DUI-liquor, DUI-drugs
According to this guy's haircut, North Korea is best Korea.


Charges: Possession of drug paraphernalia
