We here at SportSmasher.com have seen some incredible in-costume mugshots following DUI arrests, one of my personal favorites is a woman who got two DUIs in one night, one wearing full zombie makeup and one without any makeup. Never drink and drive, but if you are going to be be stupid and attempt it, make sure you remove your ridiculous costume first. Not only does it tip off the cops that you are drunk, because you are 100% getting a breathalyzer if you get pulled over wearing full Tin Man makeup, but it also guarantees that your mugshot will go viral.

I hear if you synchronize the police cruiser dashcam video of his arrest with Pink Floyd’s Darkside Of The Moon album it’s really trippy.
