Celebrity Mug Shots Wind Up As Cell Phone Wallpaper

HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Cell phone users can now have troubled celebrities looking at them from behind bars thanks to a company that’s selling celebrity mug shot wallpaper.

At, jail shots of stars such as Hugh Grant, R. Kelly, Christian Slater, James Brown, and Nick Nolte can be downloaded to a cell phone and set as wallpaper.

Although the $1.99 downloads were made available just this week, website spokesman Riz Benjamin says they have already gotten dozens of orders, including ones for Nolte, Nick Carter and Carmen Electra.

Benjamin’s believes his favorites – James’ mug shot from a 2004 arrest for domestic violence and Nolte’s shot from 2002 when he was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving – will be the top sellers because “the best mug shots are always the ones with the crazy hair and looks.”

Benjamin figures his company will continue making new mugs of the rich and famous available for cell phones “as long as celebrities keep getting into trouble with the law.”
