Mug-Shot Friday: Hotel Bandits, A Chimneysweep, and a Trip Down a Chute

Welcome to this week's post of the Broward-Palm Beach edition of Mug-Shot Friday, a longstanding franchise focusing on the week's most eye-catching mug shots from South Florida's tat heads, tough guys, and femmes fatale. Check out Miami New Times' Riptide blog for the Miami-Dade edition.

Arrested: 3/3

Last Saturday was a sad day for South Florida -- the area's last freelance chimneysweep got sent up the river.

Arrested: 3/3

One can see a lot of different personalities looking through mug shots -- people sometimes react with sadness, anger, confusion. But it's pretty rare that someone's face so clearly says "I'm going to be a huge pain every second I am here."

Arrested: 3/7

His hair isn't stuck that way -- the mug-shot camera is actually in the middle of a long chute. Suspects get tossed down the pipe and have their picture snapped on the way to a ball pit. His hair was made for the chute.

"Looook at that guy's mohawk. Wish I coulda seen him in the chute."

Arrested: 3/5

It looks like somebody took mohawk guy and pulled his hairdo down through his chin! No, but really -- don't mess with this guy. He heard that only weird, insecure guys get barbed wire tattoos around their biceps, so he got barbed wire around his throat. Can't be foolin' with a mind like that.

Arrested: 3/4

You got charged with theft? Well you can SAY GOODBYE to those dreams of hosting a Home Shopping Network jewelry show, missy! We're just going to have to find someone else to sell turquoise rings to people with young faces and old necks. 

Arrested: 3/3

Whoa, Scott. Whoa. This is why I said not to have that third cup of coffee.

These two fellas were booked 30 minutes apart on charges listed as "FRAUD-SWINDLE - DEFRAUD INNKEEPER." I can only hope they're connected -- the buddy-comedy film revenue potential for this duo is in Judd Apatow territory.
