Miss El Paso and the Most Beautiful Mug Shot Ever

| by

Mug shots are typically nothing to get excited about. Unless they are funny (see Nick Nolte and his electric hair), they usually capture people at their worst.

But Miss El Paso 2008 Lorena Tavera took a striking mug shot down at the police station after she was caught (allegedly) stealing a $69 shirt from a department store.

Needless to say, this 21-year-old woman has a future in modeling. That is, if she can just get her life on track. You see, this isn't Tavera's first brush with the law. According to the Daily Mail, she had two outstanding traffic warrants. She was booked and released after posting $300 bond.

By the way, something tells us that police will have their eye on Tavera.

Interestingly, Tavera isn't the first beauty pageant winner arrested by the El Paso Police. Officers arrested Raelene Aguilar, Miss New Mexico 2008 on a drunken driving charge in 2009.

Here is more of Tavera.
