VSL:WEB // See the top 20 mug shots of 2008

Well, Robert Downey Jr. had a good year: Time magazine included him in its annual survey of people who mattered. And — for once — the Smoking Gun did not.

The website’s top 20 mug shots of 2008 do include those of Heather Locklear (arrested in September for a DUI) and Andy Dick (arrested in July on charges of sexual battery and drug possession). But TSG’s devoted far more space to everyday miscreants like Michele Allen — who got drunk last September, put on a cow costume, and chased the neighborhood kids around the block — and Florida’s Justin Bebee, who has the word PSYCHO inked across his forehead and a certain anatomically impossible injunction tattooed upon his eyelids. Guilty? You be the judge.
