Key takeaways...

  • Driving under the influence is against the law
  • If found guilty of DUI, you can face jail time and expensive fines
  • You can also lose your license permanently

Driving under the influence can have severe penalties including heavy fines, suspension of your driver’s license, mandatory rehab treatment and even jail time depending on the circumstances of your case so why do so many celebrities have DUI charges?

Maybe it’s a complete lack of respect for the laws when you become a little famous or maybe it’s considered good PR.

One thing for sure however is driving under the influence of alcohol is never cool and illegal. Anyone who poses a danger to other drivers from consuming too much alcohol and getting behind the wheel well deserves a lifetime of ugly mugshots living on the web.

#2 – Rip Torn

One of our favorite actors and a guy who doesn’t seem altogether any day of the week but when posing for a DUI mugshot he certainly brings his A game!

#3 – Wynona Judd

Some could argue Wynona has a little devil inside. Turn off the lights and look at Wynona’s mugshot in the dark. The movie Candyman may be less scary than this mugshot.

#4 – Kim Mattingly (ex-wife of New York Yankee’s Don Mattingly)

Just spooky. There are many reasons to get divorced but if your wife looks anything like her mugshot in real life well …

Santa Barbara is one of our favorite places in the world and if you get a DUI there and come out looking 1/10th as good as Heather Locklear did then you’ll certainly avoid a life of embarrassing mugshots floating around.

#9 – Mike Tyson

Tyson gets better with age. With funny roles in blockbuster movies like the Hangover, Mike Tyson is not just re-appearing in celebrity scenes but he still continues to scare anyone with a simple look. How much you wanna bet the photographer was just hoping Mikey didn’t deck him?

#10 – Michelle Rodriguez

Although she’s famous on and off, sexy sometimes and sometimes not, Michelle Rodriguez’s longest lasting role may just be one of the scariest DUI mugshots around. Yes, pictures like this will long outlast the TV series LOST.
