A Miami man with half a head was arrested on charges of soliciting a prostitute earlier this month. According to a police report, he allegedly tried to purchase vaginal sex from an undercover officer for $80. But really– can you blame him for any of that?
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'.
The suspect had an unique physical feature alright... no forehead!
The mugshots, especially the one of the suspect in profile, shows why the arresting officers were left scratching their normal heads for a proper description.
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.
