Half a head – Dude!

According to this story Miami police recently arrested a man for soliciting prostitution and faced a conundrum of sorts while trying to fill out their paperwork. It seems that they were at a loss when they got to the part about distinguishing characteristics – like tattoos, scars, missing limbs, etc.

Police arresting a man for allegedly soliciting prostitution in Miami earlier this month ran into a bit of difficulty when they got him back to the station.

It was not a matter of him resisting arrest or being uncooperative. Nor did it have anything to do with his identification – he provided his name and other personal details, and submitted to fingerprinting and a mugshot.

The trouble started when they got to the part in the paperwork that requires them to note ‘unique physical features’.

As you can see from the mugshots, this guy’s “unique physical features” almost defy description – especially in today’s PC-infested nomenclature.











After an unspecified period of time, the police clearly gave up, as the charge sheet merely states ‘half a head’ – hardly the medical term for it.

The release of the highly individual mugshot online caused a flurry of conjecture over whether the photos were faked.

But a spokeswoman from the Miami-Dade County Pre-Trial Detention Center said she saw the suspect while he was being processed.

She rather casually added: ‘I just looked at him. I see a lot of stuff. It didn’t really bother me.’

  1. Yikes! Are you sure that’s not photoshopped? If not, I can see where “soliciting prostitution” could be necessary!

    • No, I’m not sure but it makes you wonder. Back in the old days they lobotomized people by removing or disabling just a small portion of their frontal lobe. This guy looks like he literally lost half his brain. One wonders how he can function…
