Unforgettable Mug Shots: Funny, Weird, And Downright Unbelievable Faces Of Crime (PHOTOS)

We'll let the judicial system decide who's committed a crime, but there's no doubt about who's guilty of having an amazing mug shot.

At the HuffPost Weird News, we sift through booking photos all day long. So for one to stick out, it has to be a doozy.

Just when we think we've seen it all, someone surprises us -- like the guy who stumbled out of an Applebee's and into police custody for allegedly harassing customers while dressed up like the Joker from "The Dark Knight."

We bring you a salute to the all-time most memorable mug shots.
