I have never been arrested. I've always been a pretty good girl, no major trouble, and certainly no jail. These ladies from the past were not so lucky. I was always the type to kind of look like a bad girl, but was secretly too afraid to get into any real shenanigans.  I was a wuss (and still am), but whatever, it kept me out of jail.

Due to my obsession with old movies, I always want to imagine women as so lady-like and elegant back then. It's hard to imagine them getting into any major trouble with the law.

I don't know what these ladies did to get arrested, but their mugshots are incredible. Don't even get me started on the hair in some of these photos (love it). Here are some awesome vintage mugshots of bad girls from the past.

Have you ever had a brush with the law?
