With the entertainment reporters having a field day with the latest negative antic of 19 year old superstar Justin Bieber...we remember Frank Sinatra's bad night.

More Photos

It is the now infamous poster of Frank's mug shots. What's the story? proof of Frank's 'Mob" ties? Not really, the pictures were taken by the Bergen County, New Jersey police.

The picture haunted Frank for his entire career. It certainly, didn't help having the poster version on the wall at TV Tony Soprano's Bada Bing Club.

In I938, Frank was singing at his first real professional gig at the Rustic Cabin in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, just up the road from the George Washington Bridge.

Even at that young age, the other band members reported that Frank was a big attraction to the ladies. One night, so the story goes, Frank was invited out to the parking lot for a "personal encounter."

Unfortunately, a policeman tapped on the car window sending the woman into a panic....she started screaming "rape." Frank was arrested, and these photos were taken. The next day, the woman, who was married, dropped the charges. Case dismissed. But, the pictures never went away.
