Photos: Fifteen mystery Colorado mug shots and what the arrestees might have been thinking
"Are you looking at me? Are you looking at me?" More photos below.
KREX-TV in Grand Junction, for which I interned many, many years ago, takes a highly unusual approach to its latest booking-photos roundup. The station doesn't identify anyone or reveal why they were made to pose for a mug shot -- which inspires the viewer to use his imagination.
Here are our picks for the fifteen most memorable pics and what we imagine each person was thinking when the camera clicked.
"Bow before my chin beard!" Number 14:
"It makes me sad when you won't get off my lawn." Number 13:
"No, I don't appreciate jokes about male pattern baldness." Number 11:
"After this, can we go out and grab a beer?" Number 10:
"Don't take that yet. I've got something stuck in my teeth." Continue to keep counting down our gallery of fifteen mystery Colorado mug shots and what the arrestees might have been thinking. Number 9:
