Getting arrested is no laughing matter, but it seems a handful of celebrities didn't get that memo.
Samantha Ronson – who was detained Monday morning for allegedly driving under the influence – is the latest public figure to slap a smirk on her face while getting her mug shot taken.
Michelle Rodriguez, who was arrested on DUI charges in 2006, displayed a similar expression for her unfortunate photo op.

Michelle Rodriguez reported to jail Sunday in Lynwood, Calif. to begin serving her six-month sentence for violating probation in a DUI case.
According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Web site, the former Lost star was booked at 4:33 p.m. in the same facility where Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and Lindsay Lohan did their time.
Although Superior Court Judge Daviann L. Mitchell forbid an early release for Rodriguez, the sheriff may have no choice but to override that order due to jail overcrowding, legal experts say.
Rodriguez may also get out early for good behavior, which is granted by state law.

Michelle Rodriguez has had drug testing performed to prove she is clean of drugs, according to TMZ.com, which has published what it says are her Oct. 18 test results.
The site says she underwent the test – which clears her of having any trace of 10 common substance groups or alcohol in her bloodstream – after rumors circulated that she was still partying hard, even after her most recent brush with the DUI laws. Rodriguez even uses her own Web site to direct fans to the report on TMZ.
