Every Friday, Riptide brings you the most eye-catching mugshots taken the previous week (or thereabouts) in Miami-Dade County. Yes, there is some mockery of bad neck tattoos, but also adulation directed at perps who just plain look more badass than we ever will. This is the italicized intro to that series. For mugshots from Broward and Palm Beach, check out The Pulp.

Arrested: 9/15
Charged with: Battery
When people ask me why I decided to be a reporter, I tell them that it's not just so I could run a mildly popular weekly blog post wherein I make fun of people who've been arrested. It's so I could ask the tough questions, like my forthcoming query to the police: When you arrested the Ghost of Benjamin Franklin, was it hard putting handcuffs on his spectral wrists?

Arrested: 9/15
Charged with: Drug trafficking, marijuana possession, possession of a controlled substance
What was the controlled substance, you ask? Why, it's right there in plain sight on our perp's chest: Florezy, an anti-histamine a hundred times more powerful than Claritin! Which means it'll stop your sneezing for, like, an hour.

Arrested: 9/15
Charged with: Marijuana possession, cocaine possession
A TEC-9 t-shirt? Florezy's smoking AK-47 body ink says, "Get on my level, punk."

Love this feature. It's the first thing I look for online every Friday.

This is one of the worst parts of your news organization. I enjoy the Miami News Times, but making lite of people's misfortune is something I am not interested in.
