Remember to start your search by using your full name, including any middle names. You should be able to find your mug shot online. You then need to go to This website offers the largest online database today of mugshots, so you can be sure that there is a high chance that your mug shot will be on here.

There is a search bar on the homepage, and you just need to type in your full name into this search bar. If the database has any mug shots of the name that you have typed in then they should appear below the large search bar with names and images to help you determine whether the image is of you or not. There is also a browsing feature on the website which will allow you to browse all of the mugshots available on the website by their categories, which include celebrity. Of course many people use the celebrity category to look up famous mug shots like that of Bill Gates, former CEO of Microsoft.

If you can't find your mugshot and you instead want to look for somebody else, and you know that the person you're looking for is a sex offender, then another website can help you. For instance, will allow you to search for mugshots of sex offenders either by their name or their location. If you search for a specific individual then just enter their name into the search bar along side the relevant state. If the name you have entered matches a sex offender on their mug shot database then a window will pop up on your screen with a mugshot of that person. These are two of the largest databases available so you should get hold of the mugshots that you need.

Go to the city you were arrested in and search for , say, San Diego, Sheriff's Dept., "Who was arrested?" No kidding. Or....Go to San Diego, ( or your city), Sheriff' Dept. And look up arrest records by your booking number or your name, and you should be able to find your mug shot. Do you want to check out how good/bad you looked? LOL May as's in the past, now.

Easy, go into your kitchen, look on the counter, and if you find your mug shattered, then, odds are that it was shot.

Well about 9 years ago I went to jail for disturbing the peace and when I was booked I asked the bailiff how I could get a copy of my mugshot. He told me that the best way was to go to their website and fill out their online request, this would take about 6 to 8 weeks. Long story short, there was a long story written out on the stall-wall in sharpie with the traditional Bel-Air ending. It blindsided me as I never expected to be Bel-Aired IRL. Well, I got Bel-Aired IRL again today, apparently some guy at my campus keeps posting/writing this stuff around campus. I was in Patterson Hall (the English building) and on one of the bulletin boards there was a poster for a visiting writer who was going to read some of his work. It had the first paragraph of one of his short stories on the sheet, so I began to read. My cellphone rang, and it was my mom, she said "You're movin" with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air'. I whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror. If anything I can say this cab is rare but I thought 'Now forget it' - 'Yo homes to Bel Air'. I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 And I yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes smell you later' I looked at my kingdom I was finally there to sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air.

Since you are hiding as a GUEST, and must be too shy to become a REAL BLURTER, we really could not give you a reasonable answer, not knowing where you live, who you are, or anything else about you. What have you done to believe that you have a MUG SHOT somewhere? Inquiring minds want to know.

You go down town on the bus to a big building that has two concrete lions perched on pedestals made of concrete and walk up the steps and go to the lady at the counter and ask her if you look familiar.give her about two minutes and see if any big guys in blue show up behind you with their baretta's drawn/pointed at your mug. If not you are free to go.oh! The reason I said take the bus is so you have no way of taking off in your car. You could also see if you had any recent notices to go pick up a new free big flat screen tv that you won mysteriously.
