It was 37 years ago today when the greatest photo in Rochester Police Department history was taken. David Bowie was in town on his 1976 World Tour. After giving a performance at the War Memorial Arena on March 20th, Bowie was arrested in a hotel suite in the early morning hours of March 21st. Three others were also booked including James Osterberg, or Iggy Pop, the “godfather of punk rock.” This infamous mugshot was taken when the rockstar returned to Rochester and pleaded “not guilty” to the felony drug charge in Rochester City Court.

Yea, I was at the concert.  It was the "Station to Station Tour."
