Addiction: The Only Disease You Can Get Arrested For Having

It is practically common knowledge that addiction is a disease. In clinical terms, addiction is used to describe a physical dependence, obsession or compulsion which include: compulsive gambling, alcoholism, drug addiction and more. But for some people, the disease becomes a spectacle for all to witness. The following is just a short compilation of celebrity mug shots which have appeared throughout the pages of magazines and newspapers around the world as a consequence of their addictions.  


Robert Downey Jr.

Before his big comeback to acting as Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man), Robert Downey Jr. was arrested several times on drug-related charges. He also spent many years in and out of rehabilitation programs by court order, only to be incarcerated for violating those terms.


Lindsay Lohan

Cameras are nothing new to Lindsay Lohan. However, this shot is slightly less flattering than the average head shot. In 2007, Lindsay Lohan was arrested for driving under the influence and possession of cocaine just one week after leaving an alcohol treatment center.



Paris Hilton

During a time when it seemed almost fashionable to be arrested for drunk driving, Paris Hilton wouldn’t be left behind. After a DUI, reckless driving charge and general probation violations, Paris casually posed for this famous mug shot while being booked for her short stay at Los Angeles prison. 


Heather Locklear
After being arrested for driving under the influence, Heather Locklear was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail. The actress was also suspected of being under the influence of prescription drugs.
