Midas Mugshot: Patrick Tribbett

All that glitters is not gold, as the old adage says. That seems particularly true for Patrick Tribbett. This West Virginia man’s glittery spray-paint mugshot made national headlines and even caught the attention of a few merchandise companies. He was not please, to say the least.

Following his 2005 arrest for huffing paint, Tribbett’s gilded goatee proved to be a golden sensation on the Internet. According to Business Insider, several commercial merchandisers used his likeness to adorn their products, like t-shirts and mugs with the slogan “I wanna know where da gold at.” Tribett then set out to sue said firms, proverbially huffing and puffing.
