Colleen Shannon

Playboy Playmate ARRESTED

for Smuggling Man into U.S.

8/17/2012 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Colleen Shannon mug shotColleen Shannon -- a 2004 Playboy Playmate -- was ARRESTED last night after allegedly trying to smuggle an unidentified male into the U.S. through the Canadian border.

Law enforcement tells us ... the 34-year-old blonde is currently locked up in Clinton County Jail in Upstate New York, where she was booked for violating a federal statute prohibiting "bringing in and harboring aliens."

A source with knowledge of the situation tells us the foreigner is Shannon's boyfriend ... but we have yet to confirm.

If convicted on the charge, she could face up to 10 years in prison.

Shannon (34-25-34) -- who now works as a sexy nightclub DJ --  is scheduled to appear in front of a judge sometime today.

A rep for Shannon calls the ordeal "a misunderstanding."

Sorry but she is not all that good looking, especially for a so called "playmate". Dumb skank.

So neither her or her boyfriend understood that Canadians are allowed to cross in to the U.S. legally and that tens of thousands do so daily for such trivial things such as shopping? Should have just sat in the front seat, showed his passport when asked for it and then just never went back. Though I'm not sure why anyone would want to leave Canada permanently for the U.S. these days.

Did you have to include her measurements? That really bugged me. This juvenile style of reporting has got to stop. Otherwise, love TMZ :)

Glad TMZ has finally gotten it together and didn't call her a "former" Playmate. I hate that sh*t. Just looks rough there.She supposedly could spend 10 yrs in prison! Yet..illegals come across in droves from Mexico every day. A$$ backwards country.

I find it very interesting that there are millions of people illegally crossig our border to the south of us every year and they are protected by our own government, but just one person tries to cross the border to the north and everybody gets their underwear in a wad. Very interesting.

Obviously he was not a Latino. If they had flown first to Mexico then drove across the border he would have been a US Citizen by now and receiving Hussein and Dick's Financial blessings.

But there is more to the story - I suspect they are also anti - Obuma peoples.

Wait a minute - Canadians don't need a passport or even a visa to cross the boarder. Why are Mr Dick H.' body guards busting hard on Canadians? Maybe the man is Caucasian also?

Considering that the Canadian economy is twice as good as the US and that an American made (LOL) car is half the the cost in the US and a loaf of bread is a third of the US cost, why would any one want to illegally sneak into the US to be UN B Hussein's lordship? Hell half of the populations that live along the boarder of both countries Have family living on both sides of the boarder. There are more Canadian license plates in my home town than US on any given day. The same is for Medicine hat or Calgary Alberta. Most of the truckers on the tans-Canada US citizens.

These charges just don't make logical sense - there has to be more to this. There is a rotting smell rising from DC around this, Is the plumbing backed up at the Capital?
