Now, you may be surprised to hear this, but occasionally, professional athletes run into some “trouble” with the “law.” We’ve compiled a list of the best athlete mug shots, with a little help from The Smoking Gun. Just don’t forget that behind those glassy eyes, incarcerated athletes still have thoughts and feelings. Let’s explore, shall we?
Ricky Williams: “Whoa, dude, that flashbulb thing was like, awesome. Have you ever really, really thought about how cool cameras are? They, like, capture moments in time, ya know? Maaan that’s cra-zy. Soo cool.”
Deion Sanders: “Priiiimmme tiiiiimme … priiiimmee tiiime. Deion’s gettin’ outta here in about fiiiiive minutes. Deion’s gonna be gettin’ a lap dance in about ten minutes. Priiiimmme tiiimme … priiimmme tiiime.”
Andre the Giant: “We face each other as God intended. Sportsmanlike. No tricks, no weapons, skill against skill alone … It’s not my fault being the biggest and the strongest. I don’t even exercise … You be careful. People in masks cannot be trusted.”
Scottie Pippen: “Is it cool if hold this thing so it looks like I’m taking a normal picture at an 80s bash unless you scroll down to see the words “Houston Police Department”?
Kirby Puckett: “Ribbit.”
Michael Irvin: “Those damn oompa loompas are so damn cute … What a great fucking movie … I like the original a little better though … Oompa loompa doompa dee doo, I have another crack pipe for you … Ha, that’s funny … I should write that one down … Note to self …”
Sergei Fedorov: “Well, this is not going to help my reputation as EuroTrash.”
Don King: “I’m Don King! I’m not worryin’ ’bout this! In about 30 years, no one’ll ever remember that I killed two people in cold blood! Instead, I’ll be close friends with world leaders like the pope! Love ya Jesus!”
Mike Tyson: “Bitch had it comin’.”
