Old Bowie Mug Shot

The Thin White Duke was arrested in upstate New York in March 1976 on a felony pot possession charge. 29 at the time, Bowie was nabbed along with Iggy Pop and two other codefendants at a Rochester hotel following a concert.

Bowie was held in the Monroe County jail for a few hours before being released. The below Rochester Police Department mug shot was taken three days after Bowie's arrest, when the performer appeared at City Court for arraignment, looking sharp.
