Johnny Cash was arrested in October 1965 at the El Paso International Airport after U.S. Customs agents found hundreds of pep pills and tranquilizers in his luggage as he returned from a trip to Juarez, Mexico. The Man in Black spent a night in the county jail and later pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count, for which he paid a $1000 fine and received a 30-day suspended sentence.

The Smoking Gun has lots of mug shots of notable people.

I have his new collection Unearthed, a 5 CD set of superb tunes, including the haunting Singer Of Songs.
