Janis Joplin – Musician Mug Shots

Janis JoplinLess than a year before her untimely death, Janis Joplin was arrested in Tampa, Fla. on Nov. 17, 1969 for disorderly conduct as a result of her behavior at a concert the evening before.

The singer apparently had a bunch of less-than-flattering things to say about the local police force from the stage of the concert. However, the charges were eventually overturned, with a judge ruling her statements fell under the realm of free speech.
