Leave it to Charles Barkley to liven up an otherwise slow news day. In celebration of Sir Charles’ stupidity, we have compiled the Top 10 greatest mug shots in the history of sports.
In 2005, the former Dallas Cowboy wider receiver was arrested in Texas and charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. The arrest didn’t surprise many, but his reaction did. Who smiles that big after getting arrested? He probably thinks he gets to keep that bright orange shirt to go with the rest of his ridiculous wardrobe.
Wrestling legend Andre the Giant was arrested in 1989 for having the world’s worst sideburns. No sir, but after looking at this photo it’s kinda believable. In reality, he was snagged for assaulting a TV cameraman.
OK, so these mug shots of the world’s most annoying boxing promoter aren’t that crazy. We were just surprised to see him with an acceptable head of hair. To be honest, we thought he was born with that birds’ nest on his head.
Finally, somebody more excited to get arrested than Michael Irvin. The best part is the reason why he got arrested – no, it wasn’t possession of marijuana (as his eyes suggest). He was arrested to fishing on a lake owned by the Southwest Florida International Airport.
An instant classic – just a few short months ago, the perpetually-drunk golfer was arrested for having a few too many adult beverages at Hooter’s. At least his shirt now matches the waitress’ shorts.
No, this isn’t Scottie’s ninth grade yearbook photo. It’s the mugshot he took after being arrested in 1999 for drunk driving. If you ask us, it looks like the Houston police department had a few too many pops too. How hard is it to straighten out that sign?
We’re not 100 percent sure, but we think the footballer got picked up for attacking the man who stole his lips.
In 1998, the wrestling star known as The Big Show was arrested for exposing his “little show” to a female hotel worker in Memphis. Would it have killed him to open his eyes for the photo?
With all the arrests on “Iron” Mike’s record you would think he would have the art of the mug shot down pat. Apparently, he doesn’t. After being arrested for drunk driving, drug possession and driving into a cop car, the former boxing great had a little trouble keeping his tongue in his mouth for this shot. Hey, it’s a tough concept.
Was there really any doubt that O.J. would be No. 1? Enjoy the rest of your life behind bars, Juice.
