Morrison's Mugshot

Written by: George Chittenden : 27 Jul 2019

This famous mugshot was taken following Jim Morrison’s first arrest on September 28th, 1963. The man would go on to co-found the band ‘The Doors’ two years later, and eventually become one of the most iconic and influential frontmen in rock music history. His first arrest happened in Tallahasee, Florida, when he got rowdy at a football game and then stole an umbrella and an officer’s helmet from the open window of a police car. He was arrested for petty larceny, disturbing the peace, resisting arrest and public drunkenness at a football game, but the charges were eventually dropped and he paid a small fine. It was the first of six different arrests for a number of different crimes from charges of indecency, public obscenity to public drunkenness and vagrancy. Sadly, and it’s quite evident from his rap-sheet, that Morrison developed an alcohol dependency during the 1960s. He died in Paris when he was only twenty-seven years old of a heart attack, brought on by heroin. Did you find that interesting?
