Musicians Give Nick Nolte a Run For His Money

For celebrities there are two sure fire ways to make sure your picture gets in the press: lunch and shop on Robertson Blvd. or get arrested.

While every actor from Mel Gibson to Haley Joel Osment seems to be getting in on the mug shot game, musicians have also had a long history of posing for the po-po.

In 2002, R. Kelly had a Kodak moment when he was charged with 21 counts of child pornography, while Paris Hilton's ex, Nick Carter, had a solo stint sans his Boys when he was busted for drunk driving.

And while no one has yet to beat the beauty that is Nick Nolte's hair-raising still, Bobby Brown has enough mug shots to fill a trunk of photo albums.

From Suge Knight to even Yanni, TMZ has compiled a gallery of some of music's most infamous smooth criminals.
