Dubbed "the slap heard round the world" actress Zsa Zsa Gabor slapped a motorcycle cop in Beverly Hills after being pulled over due to expired plates. The officer was rude apparently. The best detail of the story is the silver flask of Jack Daniels in the glove compartment that her eight and current husband used to "sweeten [his] Diet Pepsi".
Zsa Zsa Gabor - Beverly Hills CA 1989 "assaulting an officer, resisting arrest, driving without a license or registration, open alcohol in vehicle" (found guilty of assault and 2 traffic charges)
Hang your favourite "criminal"... on your wall. Our fascination with retro pop culture rebels led us to create this collectible series of glittery art plaques featuring famous faces under arrest.
- Hangs flush on wall
- Collectible series
- Looks great in a grouping
- Sealed glitter sides, white back
- 5x7” size is easy to fit in spall spaces
The Glamourizing Crime series is drawn from publicly available mug shots from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s (and one 1938 outlier). We like the “classic” film-grain style of these pre-digital images, and focus our attention on largely non-violent offences with interesting stories behind them. “No beaters, no killers!”
Each hand-made plaque is carefully layered and individually embellished with glitter or Swarovski crystal accents over a glossy, archival-print-quality surface. Sides are sealed high-quality silver glitter, back is plain white with slot hanger.
A label on back outlines the details for each subject's arrest incident: city, year, charge(s), convictions/penalties/dismissals. A fun conversation piece!
Measures approx. 5 x 7 x 0.75"
