"Tanning Mom" slash human raisin Patricia Krentcil has pleaded not guilty to felony child endangerment charges and claims the story of putting her little girl in a tanning booth is being victimized in what is all a giant misunderstanding.

She also says her critics "jealous, fat, and ugly." Speaking of the latter ...

Patricia Krentcil Mug Shot

The 44-year-old New Jersey (where else) resident was on her way to a salon (hair) when she unloaded on a photographer and proclaimed she is a "fabulous" mother.

Needless to say, she is far from apologetic. About anything.

Krentcil was arrested after a school nurse asked her five-year-old daughter Anna how she got a sunburn and she replied, "I go tanning with mommy."

She faces a felony count of second-degree child endangerment.

Watch a news report about her below if you haven't seen it:

George Zimmerman made his first court appearance since being officially charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman wore a gray prison jumpsuit and spoke only to answer "Yes, sir," after being asked questions about the charge against him and his lawyer.

His hair was shaved down to stubble and he sported a thin goatee, which appeared consistent with his booking photo from the day before (below).

He resurfaced Wednesday to turn himself in after weeks in hiding. Meanwhile, a new document provided additional details on the prosecution's case.

Judge Mark E. Herr said he found probable cause to move forward with the case and an arraignment would be held on May 29 before another judge.

The affidavit of probable cause prepared by prosecutors shed some light on why they chose to charge Zimmerman in the February 26 shooting.

The Orlando Sentinel says that on that night, Trayvon Martin's mother identified screams heard in the background of a 911 call as her son's.

There were doubts as to whether Martin or Zimmerman called for help.

Prosecutors interviewed a friend of Martin's who was talking to him just before the shooting. Martin told the witness he was being followed and was scared.

Actor Michael Madsen was arrested Friday on suspicion of felony child endangerment.

Madsen was taken into custody in Malibu, Ca., then released early this morning and was in decent spirits on his way out, calling the whole incident a "big misunderstanding."

So what the heck happened exactly?

Michael Madsen Mug Shot

According to law enforcement, Madsen got into a a physical fight with his juvenile son, and when cops arrived, they observed several signs of injury on his son.

Madsen also appeared to be under the influence of alcohol at the time.

The son did not require medical attention, but Madsen was booked on a charge of child endangerment with cruelty to a child - a felony charge. Then what?

Madsen's attorney, Perry Wander, tells TMZ that "[Michael Madsen] found his son smoking pot and they got in an argument when he tried to take it away." 

"It's a family matter and Michael asks that his privacy be respected."

Next time, try shooting a laptop Mike ... that seems to work better.

How quaint.

Rapper Coolio was arrested in Las Vegas today and is currently behind bars at the same jail as his kid. "Gangstas Paradise" is a family thing in Sin City!

Coolio was a passenger in a Nissan Versa (!?) which was pulled over for a routine traffic violation early Friday morning ... and then the $h!t hit the fan.

  • Coolio Mug Shot (2012)
  • Grtis Ivey Mug Shot

The police ran his name in the system and noticed he had two active bench warrants out for his arrest stemming from multiple traffic violations.

Always pay your tickets, people. Set an example for your kids!

Coolio was arrested and hauled to Clark County Detention Center, where his son Grtis is living after allegedly robbing some dude at gunpoint.

No word if they enjoyed a heartfelt reunion during recess.

Coolio's bail has been set at $5,850. A court date has not yet been set. Grtis? Probably not getting released on bail. Armed robbery and all.

Former college football star Marcus Vick, the younger and possibly more troubled brother of Michael Vick got popped this weekend for contempt of court.

Marcus turned himself in to authorities in Newport News, Va., on Sunday after a warrant was issued for his arrest for failing to appear for two court dates.

Those dates stem from a suspended license charge, and by not showing, Marcus not only joins our celebrity mug shot page, but will spend 10 days in jail.

Marcus Vick Mugshot

Sweet deal. He will then be transferred to officials in Montgomery County, Va., to face separate charges stemming from an unrelated incident. Great.

According to reports, Vick failed to pay a $40,000 settlement in a civil case in which he was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl in 2008.

Marcus Vick was 19 at the time.

Vick was booted off the Virginia Tech football team back in 2006 following a string of arrests and has been involved in multiple legal issues since.

A back-and-forth fight over dueling claims of cyber-stalking landed troubled Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans behind bars Monday ... for the third time this year.

Yes, three arrests in 2012. It's March 6.

Jenelle, 20, turned herself in to North Carolina authorities after a warrant was issued for her arrest on Friday. Evans was released after only about half an hour, and did not have to post bond, but she did have yet another smiling mug shot taken:

Jenelle Evans Mug Shot (March 2012)

Evans' arrest was in connection with a cyber-stalking claim brought by her former boss James Duffy ... just weeks after Evans accused Duffy of the same crime.

Jenelle filed cyber-stalking charges in January against Duffy, who allegedly posted party photos of Evans online, along with her address and cell phone number.

Then Evans' ex-roommate, who was living with Duffy, had her arrested in connection with making harassing and threatening phone calls against them both.

Only six days later, Evans was arrested again for violating a domestic violence restraining order ... everybody got all that? Which brings us to yesterday:

Whitney Purvis of 16 & pregnant was arrested in Georgia yesterday for bogarting a home pregnancy test at her local Walmart ... and using it in the store.

According to police, the 20-year-old "Never Nervous" Purvis stashed a First Response pregnancy test inside her hooded jacket and sneaked off to the john.

Whitney then "took it to the restroom with her and used one."

Whitney Purvis Mug Shot

Purvis allegedly tried to sneak out of the store through a side door but was busted by store security, who put her under citizens arrest and called police.

Yes, she used a pregnancy test AT Walmart - retail price $15.98, like $4.00 less than CVS! - and got popped by Walmart rent-a-cops. All in a day's work.

Purvis was hauled to a nearby station where she was booked for misdemeanor theft by shoplifting and joined THG's exclusive celebrity mug shots page.

Purvis was featured on the MTV show in 2009. Her mom was busted for meth in Georgia last year. She recently dumped her slacker baby daddy too.

Marion "Suge" Knight was arrested in Las Vegas yesterday after a traffic stop. Cops say the hip hop mogul was carrying marijuana on him at the time.

Law enforcement sources say the one-time Death Row CEO was pulled over at 5:34 p.m. Wednesday for making an unsafe lane change in his Bentley.

Police ran Suge's name in the system (must have sat there for hours) and found multiple warrants out for his arrest, stemming from traffic violations.

Suge Knight Mugshot

After a quick search, police say they discovered a small amount of marijuana in Suge's possession. Knight was hauled off to a nearby jail for processing.

He was released a short time later after the obligatory mug shot.

Things could get worse for the man, though. Suge Knight is currently on three years unsupervised probation for driving on a suspended license.

Might wanna considering just getting a driver, Marion.

Sorry, Armie Hammer. Your arrest for marijuana possession didn't even make THG's Top 10 favorite marijuana scandals ... though it did inspire us to compile the list!

Note that there are plenty of pot smokers out there who don't appear here simply because they haven't been busted for their antics. We snub them, but they win!

Anyway, take a look at some recent stars involved in weed-related police matters below and vote for which celebrity stoner is your favorite ...

  • Chace Crawford Mug Shot
  • Matthew McConaughey mug shot

10. Chace Crawford / Matthew McConaughey (tie). The Texans tie for the 10 spot based on the classic mug shots taken after their respective arrests.

9. Snoop Dogg. Snoop's arrest this month was about as shocking as ... the #7 man on this list, who was also cited for possession in the same TOWN!

8. Jermaine Hopkins / Sam Hurd (tie). The Lean On Me star and Chicago Bears player may not be household names ... but were big time DEALERS.

7. Willie Nelson. Seriously, just leave Willie alone cops.

  • Soulja Boy Mug Shot
  • New Brooke Mueller Mug Shot

6. Soulja Boy. Recently pulled over with his entourage carrying a bunch of weed, cash and a gun. All in one briefcase. Sometimes you gotta travel light.

5. Michael Phelps. Don't hit the bong after winning a gold medal, kids.

4. Brooke Mueller. Charlie's ex claims her infamous crack pipe incident merely involved weed. Even if you give her the benefit of the doubt, what a mess!

3. Jenelle Evans. Girl can't go 24 hours without smoking up! Or getting arrested. At least some of her probation woes stem from positive drug tests.

2. Miley Cyrus. Our #2 scandal didn't even involve weed, necessarily ... but Miles totally smokes it, and who else could compete with this bong video!

1. DMX. The all-time king of celebrity mug shots is only slightly less known for his affinity for the sticky-sticky. Sometimes those things are related!

Who's your favorite celebrity stoner?
