OK, so this is definitely the cutest mug shot ever; the photo (taken in 1893) is of François Bertillon, a 23-month-old toddler, who was “arrested” on charges of gluttony — for “nibbling all the pears from a basket.”
Fortunately for François, he was spared the guillotine since this mug shot is a fake. The image was taken by his father Alphonse Bertillon a French police officer who created and standardized the modern mug shot.
