David Bowie

Music legend David Bowie was arrested in upstate New York in March 1976 on a felony pot possession charge. The Thin White Duke, 29 at the time, was nabbed along with Iggy Pop and two other codefendants at a Rochester hotel following a concert. Bowie was held in the Monroe County jail for a few hours before being released. The above Rochester Police Department mug shot was taken three days after Bowie's arrest, when the performer appeared at City Court for arraignment.

Wow, I am from Rochester & never knew this. Of course I was only 12 at the time, so I probably would not have paid any attention to the stories on the news. Was never a big fan of his but it was still interesting to read about it.
Met this man many times, and I gotta say...I would 'Book' the F*** out of him!
Love David Bowie, only a gansta, takes mugshots lookin' this fly!!!
Possibly the most badassed mug shot ever taken. Bowie looks as if he's at another fashion shoot
Looks real dapper. Lookin' real fly!
O no not David!
What? Rochester can't even get a mention? "Upstate New York" is a big ***ing place, a$$holes. Get it right.
Sexiest man alive.
A true legend. You go Dave!
This was during his "bisexual" phase I believe.
He's my favorite celeb in the world (as you might be able to tell by the name). And yes, he looks effing sexy in this picture LOL. This sucks but I still love him
