Which sought-after game animal was the reason for this man being bloodied and bruised?
Yes, this is a mugshot. But no, it probably isn't what you're thinking. From the looks of this guy, you would think he was a part of some street fight.
But actually, more than two years ago, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time while riding his motorcycle, and crossed paths with a whitetail deer in Texas. Drive at night in some of the better whitetail hunting states, and it can be just a matter of time before you connect with one. And this guy connected, all right.
According to a report from The Eagle, then-32-year-old Jimilei Russell Fox was thrown from his motorcycle, which explains the scrapes and blood all over his face. But it doesn't explain why there is a mugshot of Mr. Fox after the wreck.
First responders rushed Fox to the College Station Medical Center in Texas for treatment of non life-threatening injuries. In a series of bad-luck events, the emergency room employees searched his backpack for identification documents or a cell phone but found something else.
The bag contained a smaller plastic bag, which was suspected to be holding about 8 grams of methamphetamine, simultaneously explaining the mugshot.
A wild Texas story. It was not reported whether the deer survived or not, but Mr. Fox has now found himself with some possession charges and a sore body.
So, a deer is responsible for this man's face, but the mugshot...well, that's on him.
