""The double-shot picture, with front and profile shots alongside each other, is so familiar from 'wanted' posters in the post office, motion pictures and television, that the inference that the person involved has a criminal record, or has at least been in trouble with police, is natural, perhaps automatic," the appellate court wrote."

He has been in trouble with the police - that is why he was arrested and why this is a question.

If it is decided that a mug shot does not need to be taken of him, than no mug shots should be taken of anyone else either.
