Know When To Fold 'Em

NOVEMBER 27--Faced with the question of what pose to cop for their booking photo, the 12 suspects kicking off this week's mug shot roundup opted for the identical stance (we're no body language experts, but they each seem to be ill at ease).

Where we know the charges, they have been added to individual photo pages. But a few other notes are in order: 1) The Texan on page #3 was nabbed Monday for public intoxication (photo left) and was popped last month for criminal mischief (photo right). The 34-year-old's topless status allows him to better show off his guns; 2) The beaming California man, 29, on page #4 was collared Sunday for drunk driving. He appears to have eschewed the tragedy mask for the beaming comedy alternative; 3) The 21-year-old woman on page #6--the University of Florida's homecoming queen--was arrested last Thursday for drunk driving; 4) The Chicago man, 22, on page #9 was busted Monday for prostitution; 5) Despite his haircut's claim, the 22-year-old Floridian on page #11 likely wishes he was not arrested Sunday; and 6) The Ultimate Fighting devotee on page #12 is 18 and was booked last Friday by Florida sheriff's deputies.
