Talk about a game face.
Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Desmond Bryant was arrested Sunday in Miami on charges of criminal mischief after allegedly "going to a neighbor's house inebriated and causing a commotion," the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Bryant's less-than-flattering mugshot went viral after Raiders columnist Victor Cotto posted it to Twitter on Monday:

According to CBS Miami, police said Bryant was “extremely intoxicated” and had red, blood-shot eyes and slurred speech, as well as the “strong smell of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his breath," when he was booked at Miami-Dade County Jail at about 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
This isn't the best look for Bryant, a three-year veteran of the Raiders and a Harvard graduate, who will become an unrestricted free agent March 12.
SB Nation's Raiders blog zinged Bryant over his Ivy League roots: "After seeing this photo one might surmise that having a Harvard education doesn't automatically mean their alumnus come out prepared to handle alcohol."
Bleacher Report's Matt King mocked Bryant, comparing his mug shot to an unflattering screen capture of "Honey Boo Boo" star June "Mama" Shannon.
Meanwhile, Deadspin held a photoshop contest for Bryant's "derpy" mugshot. "We don't care what he did. Actually we do, but his mug shot is more pressing," wrote Barry Petchesky.
Earlier it had been mistakenly reported that Dallas Cowboy Dez Bryant had been arrested, Bleacher Report noted. But Dez was quick to address the confusion via Twitter:
