Amanda Bynes, Randy Travis, Amber Portwood Mugshot

Celebrities are used to having their photo taken—just not usually in jail. But for an unlucky few every year, true-life problems can land their famous mugs in an unscheduled, post-arrest photo sesh.

From Linda Hogan to Fiona Apple, from Russell Brand to Flavor Flav, the mixture of mayhem and police station lighting make for some very interesting shots, to say the least. Some stars manage to look great, and have fun during a dark moment, offering a little extra something for the folks watching at home.
