Robert Downey Jr. was photographed by the California Department of Corrections in August 1999 while serving time on a drug conviction.

Matthew McConaughey was arrested by Austin, Texas police in October 1999 and charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia after a neighbor called to complain about music blaring from the actor's crib. When cops arrived, they found McConaughey dancing around in the buff and playing bongo drums. The drug charges against McConaughey were eventually dropped, though the star did plead guilty to violating Austin's noise ordinance, for which he paid a $50 fine.
Former "Baywatch" star Yasmine Bleeth was arrested in September 2001 by Michigan police and charged with cocaine possession. The actress pleaded guilty to one criminal count and was sentenced in January 2002 to two years probation and 100 hours of community service.
Macaulay Culkin was nabbed in Oklahoma for possession of marijuana and two controlled dangerous substances (Xanax and sleeping pills) for which he did not have a prescription.

Culkin, best known for starring in the "Home Alone" movies, was arrested and briefly jailed before being released on $4,000 bond.

George Clinton, the colorful singer known as Dr. Funkenstein, was busted in December 2003 by Florida cops and charged with possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia.

Singer Bobby Brown was photographed twice on November 7, 2002. After Atlanta cops charged him with possession of marijuana, speeding, and driving without a license or proof of insurance, they discovered an outstanding warrant in neighboring DeKalb County (where he was popped in April 1996 for DUI). The oft-arrested Mr. Whitney Houston posed first at the Atlanta City Jail in a khaki shirt, and after posting bond was transported to the DeKalb County Jail for a second, more casual b'ball jersey/t-shirt photo. He posed for a third mug (in a nifty striped sweater) on January 17, 2003 after pleading guilty to the 1996 DUI and being sentenced to eight days in jail. The fourth mug shot was taken in August 2003 after Brown was picked up for alleged probation violations. The recidivist was photographed at the DeKalb County Jail in February 2004, after a judge revoked his probation. And finally, in July 2004 Brown reported to the Fulton County Jail for booking in order to avoid an arrest warrant after he got busted in December 2003 for misdemeanor battery following a fight with the missus. Oops, we said finally, but Brown was arrested again in March 2006 in Massachusetts after a check turned up a 1992 warrant for unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and an uninsured motor vehicle trailer. He posted for the bottom photo and posted $40 bail before heading out on his way.
