John Mayer's

$25,000 Mug Shot

8/27/2009 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: So The Smoking Gun put the mug up around 5 minutes before us. Before we had it in our hands, we put up a post saying we found the mug and the arrest in Atlanta ... which we posted before they got the mug up. Bottom line -- here's what John said on Twitter: "if Harvey Levin at TMZ can produce my mugshot, I will donate 25k to the charity of his choice."

We found the mug ... so pay up, John.

Here it is -- John Mayer's mug shot.

John Mayer's Mug Shot
John was arrested on May 26, 2001 for driving with a suspended license in Atlanta -- the case was dismissed exactly one month later on June 26. 

Time to fork over the dough, pal.

oh.......just found out that TheSmokinggun was launched in 1997. They were already alive when Mayer was arrested in 2001 so ideally they should have posted Mayer up the day after he got the shot.....maybe they were on a vacation??? hahahahah.......TSG-->8 YEARS LATE

TSG is all about that stuff, if they didn't already have it in their files then it obviously wasn't important enough for them to bother until TMZ was brought into the spot light by John Mayer.
TSG is trying to steal the spotlight...F'ers!

The Smoking Gun posted the photo first and they should get the money for charity. Close only works in horse shoes and hand grenades.

The musician, legendary player and over-exposed Twitter head challenged TMZ to find his mug shot from a 2001 arrest in Atlanta -- pledging to donate $25,000 to charity if the muckraking gossip site produced the photo.
In the tweet, Mayer, 31, calls out TMZ's beverage sipping honcho by name. However, the bet was to Levin, and Levin only – here's to hoping that The Smoking Gun didn't get an installment loan to get the John Mayer mugshot. Check out for more info.
