Mugshot of Cher at Age 13, Arrested for "Borrowing" Mother's Car

Moms keep everything and Cher’s mother is no exception. While the singer claims she does not remember getting arrested as a teen, her mother, Georgia Holt was happy to share the story and the mugshot with the rest of the world during a "The Tonight Show" promo interview touting Cher’s Lifetime special on May 6, 2013 titled "Dear Mom, Love Cher."

According to Holt, Cher got arrested when she was only 13 or 14-years old after she took a friend’s car to the drive-in theater. Her friend had asked her to watch his car while he ran inside to do something and Cher got tired of moving the car out of the way and waiting.

“And then the police came,” Cher said.

“And called me at 3:30 in the morning and said we have your daughter down here at the police station,” Georgia added.

Cher said she didn’t think she’d gotten arrested, and doesn’t remember there being a mugshot, but Georgia not only remembered it, she brought the mugshot along with her. Cher was mortified by the picture.
