ENTER TV/Media Avatar Contest: BUSTED!

It's my first win in the avatar contest in over a year of playing. Thanks to everyone who voted for my Shaggy avatar, and to Odo for graciously conceding despite a tie. I originally intended to enter John Candy's "Yellowbelly" character, but couldn't get a cap of that good enough to make a decent avatar.

Anyway, the theme this time around is . . . busted!

Your favorite non sci-fi/fantasy character getting arrested, handcuffed, mugged, printed, in the slammer, in the back of the squad car, or seen behind bars. As an example, here's the first entry:

What about real police mugshots, like Nick Nolte or Rip Torn?

Hey, now, don't hate on Iron Man!

I have a few ideas for this one, from M*A*S*H, The Longest Yard, Silverado, 3:10 to Yuma & The Fugitive -



Opinions, if any?

Well, I ALWAYS vote for Harrison Ford, so I gotta say The Fugitive.

Narrowin' it down a bit, to M*A*S*H (Hawkeye & Trapper John under "tent arrest" in 'The Trial of Henry Blake'), Silverado (all Jake did was kiss a girl), and The Fugitive (he didn't kill his wife!) -




Any other opinions?

Friday evening time enough for everyone to get their entries in? Then we could have the weekend for the voting.
