Actually, This Perp Should Have Gotten A Frank Serpico Or Sonny Wortzik Tattoo On His Back
Along with photographing arrestees, many police departments will also take shots of a perp’s identifying marks--like scars and tattoos--for future identification purposes. Which is what happened last Sunday when a 29-year-old New York native got arrested for pot possession by Florida cops.
As seen below, the gent is such a big Al Pacino fan--like these folks--that he has a still from “Scarface” inked on his back (below the police photo is the corresponding image of Tony Montana from the 1983 film).
While the “Scarface” appeal in understandable, we’d have gone for a shot of Pacino on the streets of New York City--either as Sonny Wortzik ("Dog Day Afternoon”), Frank Serpico (“Serpico”), or Lefty Ruggiero (“Donnie Brasco”).
