(User Submitted) – Commit a crime in Arizona and you'll likely see some jail time, but you may also earn the dubious title of "mugshot of the day." Sheriff Joe Arpaio has started a daily contest to see which criminal will earn the honors, notes IndyPosted. "Numerous people are booked into our jails each day," explains the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office website. "Vote for the mug shot you like best then see if your choice makes mug shot of the day tomorrow!” The MCSO has organized the mugshots according to crime, so users can vote for their favorite arsonist, their favorite thief, or their favorite drug user.
