Here at Hair Balls Crime Central, we gaze upon many a mugshot in our daily routine. After looking at thousands from dozens and dozens of jurisdictions, we can say beyond a shadow of a doubt than none are consistently as wonderful as those made by the police in Trinity, Texas.

The people behind the cameras in the town on the northwest reaches of Lake Livingston are true artists. They seem to use a higher-quality camera than other law enforcement agencies, and the lighting and beige backdrop are nonpareil in the state.

Of course, all the technique and technology in the world wouldn't be able to overcome poor raw material. Luckily, Trinity shows no such shortage -- the town's (alleged) meth freaks, pillheads and drunks offer up a nonstop parade for the town's shutterbug geniuses.

And without further ado, here are our favorites from the past few months. Gaze upon them and quake, and click to enlarge if you dare...

David Fabela, 31: driving while intoxicated, resisting arrest and driving while license invalid with previous convictions. Fabela allegedly backed into a car in the parking lot of Tiny's Tavern, where he had just gotten into a fight. Fabela fled the scene, the owner of the other car in hot pursuit. Officers observed this chase and became involved. Fabela got Tased on his way downtown, so this picture here is the finale in what had to be a very long and hard night.
