Photo of the Day: Melo's Mugshot

As you've likely heard by now, Carmelo Anthony was cited early this morning on suspicion of DUI. The details:
↵
↵⇥Police said the Denver Nuggets forward was arrested on Interstate 25. He was pulled over for weaving and failing to dim his lights. Detective Sharon Hahn said Anthony, who was alone in the car, failed a series of sobriety tests. He was ticketed and released at the scene, but Hahn did not know how he got home. Denver police don't jail DUI suspects and Anthony was no exception, Hahn said.

↵Seeing as the AP story says he was released at the scene, it seems odd that there was a mugshot taken of 'Melo. Where and why was a photo taken if he wasn't arrested? I don't have those answers, but I'm certainly grateful for the Denver police's photographing skills, because this one is a gem. That is the face of a man who had a 3-for-14 night and just needed to unwind. And don't dare ask him to snitch on nobody, cause it ain't gonna happen. We all know that "snitches get stitches."
