It's official: Lindsay Lohan has been incarcerated. The troubled actress and singer has been sentenced to 90 days in a Los Angeles correctional facility (though she is only expected to serve 25 percent of her time, which means she could be out in three weeks). Once her jail time is completed, she will be transferred to an inpatient rehab facility, where she will spend 90 full days as a part of her sentence. Lohan appeared in court this morning, was subject to a 10 minute hearing and was then handcuffed and transferred to the jail. The scene at the court house was a minor circus, as well wishers (including her own father) shouted encouragement at her and tossed glitter in her direction.
Once Lohan got to the correctional facility, she took her official mug shot (which you can see here), which is one of the stranger moments for any celebrity. Some mug shots have become somewhat iconic in certain performers' careers (James Brown's mug shot became a sad lasting image for him, while Hugh Grant's perfectly captured the vibe of his particularly embarrassing arrest), while others offer the opportunity for entertainment (Kid Rock looked absolutely giddy in his mug shot, as did Kimora Lee Simmons and Vanilla Ice).
Of course, the business of turning celebrity mug shots into iconic photography isn't new. As you can see above, Frank Sinatra got his mug shot taken after he was arrested for "carrying on with a woman" way back in 1938. The Sinatra shot made its way into pop culture (it was famously visible in Tony's office on "The Sopranos"). Lohan's shot is fairly typical, though it's possible that it could join the pantheon of the greats like Brown, Grant and Robert Downey, Jr.
