Walking Dead actress Shannon Guess Richardson shocked the world by sending ricin-poisoned letters to President Obama. She crossed the line from famous to infamous.

Many celebrities have crossed that line. Check out some of the crimes that these famous faces earned their mugshot for...


Heiress Hilton was arrested in Vegas when police discovered cocaine in her purse. Paris told them that the purse did was not hers...that's one way to get into infamy!

2) Barron Hilton

Another Hilton, but Barron was arrested in 2008 on different charges: he was pulled over by cops for Driving Under Influence. Was Barron acting up to draw attention from his more famous older sisters?


Linday Lohan has been in and out of jail so many times she could have her own article, but the troubled star has mostly been busted for possession, and then for breaking the terms of her parole. Lohan should cut down on crossing the line...

4) Dina Lohan

Lohan Snr was pulled over for drink-driving in New York, with a blood-alcohol level over twice the legal limit. Dina and Lindsay's mother-daughter mugshots must be a sad sight for the Lohan family, who've probably had enough infamy by now.


R. Kelly faced 14 charges of sexual contact with a minor, as well as a charge of possessing child pornography in 2002. The popular R&B singer was eventually acquitted, but with such a successful career to safeguard, Kelly would do well to stay on the right side of the line.


Jersey Shore star Snooki was hauled in for disorderly conduct, which these mugshots reflect pretty accurately; that is some truly disorderly mascara. Snooki revels in her infamous persona, having originally rocketed to fame when she was punched in the face by a man in a bar brawl on Jersey Shore.


A terrifying mugshot from Academy Award nominated Cape Fear actor Nick Nolte, after he was arrested in 2002 for DUI drugs charges. Nolte is still more famous for his film roles than for his hellraising (possibly dependent on who you ask!), so he'd be wise to walk the line in future.


Gossip Girl actor Chace Crawford was arrested in Texas, 2010, for carrying under two ounces of marijuana. He was held briefly in Plano before being bonded out. Crawford hasn't repeated this incident, so it seems the young star merely took a wrong turn; the spoils of fame affect most.

9) Khloe Kardashian

Reality TV star of Keeping up with the Kardashians Khloe did a short stint in jail related to a DUI charge from 2007. However, Khloe did have the decency to turn herself into LAPD to confess her actions, which adds some points in her favor.


Dazed & Confused star Jason London probably wins the prize for worst mugshot and most bizarre crime...the actor allegedly defecated in the cop car after being arrested for fighting in a bar!

Share if these line-crossing celebrity mugshots gave you a WTF!
