Billy Crawford Mug Shot Photo

ABS-CBN has obtained a mug shot photo of It's Showtime host Billy Crawford who was arrested and detained in a Taguig police station after going berserk.

Taking of mug shot allows law enforcement to have a photographic record of an arrested person for the purpose of identification by victims and investigators.

The Billy Crawford mugshot picture was first shown briefly on the Kapamilya morning show Umagang Kay Ganda (UKG) on Monday, September 8.

In it, the singer-host is seen being handcuffed and slightly bowing his head while looking seriously at the camera, while a police officer is holding the placard with Crawford's name, booking ID and other relevant information.

According to police, Crawford went to Police Community Precinct 7 in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) shortly after 4 a.m. on September 7.

The TV host, who appeared drunk, was asking for assistance due to a "personal problem." He allegedly got angry to a female front desk officer and broke the sliding glass door of the police station.

Crawford admitted his fault and apologized to the policemen.
