Was browsing the old Smoking Gun website and noticed… an awful lot of famous people have had their mug shots taken by Memphis police.
There’s American Idol finalist 2004 Trenyce, AKA Lashundra Cobbins, busted in 1999 for theft. Comedian Anthony Anderson from the movie Barbershop. Amy Crews from Big Brother Three, Ozzy Osborne, wrestler The Big Show, and gangster George “Machine Gun” Kelly.
You can say this about Memphis police officers: they take the best photos. Notice how in each mugshot, the perp (great newsroom word) holds the slate which proudly names Memphis or Shelby County. Talk about marketing strategy and name placement.
