Trump’s mug shot joins list of celebrities who were also arrested

No matter the outcome in the case against former President Donald Trump, where he and 18 others are accused of trying to steal the 2020 election, one thing is certain: His mugshot will live forever.

Trump was booked at Georgia’s Fulton County Jail on Thursday, making his the first mugshot of a former president.

But he’s not alone. Famous (or infamous) celebrity mugshots are nothing new.

Here are a few you might remember:

Jane Fonda

The legendary actress and activist was arrested on Nov. 3, 1970, on drug smuggling charges as well as assault and battery in Cleveland after she was accused of kicking a police officer.

Fonda had just arrived at the airport when police seized her bag. Fonda said officers told her the orders for her arrest came from the Nixon White House, according to a Washington Post report. All charges were later dropped.

Frank Sinatra

Another infamous mugshot is Frank Sinatra’s from 1938 in New Jersey.

The reason for his arrest even more curious: seduction.

According to the Crime Museum, a seduction charge “was generally applied when a man convinced an unmarried woman of good repute to engage in an inappropriate encounter with him. There was generally a promise of marriage that was never actually forthcoming, thereby ruining her reputation.”

Although the legendary singer and actor, 23 at the time, was arrested under the charge, it was later discovered that “the supposedly single woman (in Sinatra’s case) was in fact married.”

He would be arrested again later that year for adultery, but Sinatra ultimately posted bond and was released.

Nick Nolte

One of the most-remembered mugshots ever was actor Nick Nolte’s from Sept. 12, 2002.

Nolte was arrested in Malibu, California, after a California Highway Patrol officer saw his Mercedes-Benz driving erratically.

The actor was cited and released on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, but his booking photo lives on.

Mickey Rourke

Actor Mickey Rourke was arrested in Miami Beach in 2007 for DUI.

According to reports, Rourke was driving a green scooter, swerving around several times, and even making a U-turn with a red light.

A police report said the actor “had a flushed face and bloodshot, watery eyes, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath,” according to The Associated Press.

He was booked at the Miami-Dade County Jail and released on a $1,000 bond.

David Bowie

In March 1976, legendary singer David Bowie had just performed at the Community War Memorial in Rochester, New York, when he was later arrested in his hotel.

Bowie and three other people, including musician Iggy Pop, were charged with marijuana possession. Although the singer could have faced up to 15 years of prison for the offense at the time, a grand jury decided not to indict him in May of that same year.

Bill Gates

The billionaire businessman lived in Albuquerque in 1977 when he and his friend, Paul Allen, founded Microsoft.

In December of that year, Gates was pulled over for a traffic violation and did not have his license with him. A smiley Gates was then booked at the local police station.
