Mugshot Maven: Another Booking Shot Goes Viral

HT_BATHRICK_MUG2_141205_DG_16x9_992We previously discussed the best and worst of mugshots. There is a curious trend developing after the publication of mugshots on the Internet: some are finding that their mugshots have made them overnight sensations. Alysa Suguro Bathrick, 18, is the latest of these mugshot mavens. Her mugshot has gone viral following her arrest on drug charges.

Her admirers have been sending dozens of notes and proposals. One twittered Bathrick to ask what drugs she was charged with attempting to sell. She responded, “@AndyOrte xanax homie.”

Some people just take a good picture. It does not matter if it is the DMV or the booking center.

  1. I have been exploring for a bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts in this kind of area .
    Exploring in Yahoo I finally stumbled upon this web site.

    Studying this info So i am glad to exhibit that I have an incredibly
    excellent uncanny feeling I found out just what I needed.
    I so much definitely will make sure to don?t overlook
    this site and provides it a look regularly.

  2. Sandy,

    There are a couple reasons for this. The photo procedures have changed over the years and names are included in electronic files that have the booking photos in them. The second reason is because these photos are often used in photo montages and if there is booking information in them, or with names, it makes these photos inadmissible as evidence because they can be argued as being labeled and influential on a witness.

    A third, and smaller reason, it takes time to make up and place a name plate in front of the inmate and it would be redundant with the electronic record.

  3. “…arrested on charges of possession with an intent to manufacture, sell or deliver Schedule IV controlled substances…” followed by her own scoopy tweet:

    “Surrendered myself at 7 a.m., got released at 11:30 a.m. F— what you heard. And my mugshot’s cute”

    Here’s the little genius’ twitter handle: @_ahleesah. Most dismaying are the thousands of congratulatory and lauding replies and tweets which will only serve to reinforce her level of self-esteem and arrogance. Methinks this will not end up like “Orange Is the New Black”.

  4. No big deal. Attractive people have always had an advantage over the other kind. Such a shame to spoil that beauty with harmful drugs such as xanax.

  5. Interesting twist. It’s almost always the case that the model/actress becomes the druggie, owing to success and slimeballs. Here, the druggie is likely to become a successful model.

  6. “Goes viral”. Where does that set of terms come from? Something to do with virus? Does it mean one needs an anti biotic to not look at a photo? Does it mean something has become popular?

  7. Why are we shocked that an attractive person can be accused of a crime? Not all criminals look like a Dick Tracy villain.
