Call Me By My Arrest Number: Armie Hammer Shares Old Mugshot On Instagram

Armie Hammer took to Instagram to share a #TBT photo of his 2011 arrest in Texas for marijuana possession.

Armie Hammer has taken to social media to remind fans of an unusual time in his life: The time he was arrested for marijuana possession. 

In a throwback Thursday post showcased on his Instagram account a day early, the "Call Me By Your Name" actor shared a mugshot from when he was arrested for marijuana possession in Texas back in November of 2011, according to TMZ.

The photo, which is geo-tagged at the Sierra Blanca checkpoint along the Texas-Mexico border, according to VICE, shows a scruffy Hammer half-smiling over his arrest as possibly the most clean cut criminal of all time. Taken just moments after the arrest, this photo is the same Texas town where previously Willie Nelson and Snoop Dog were arrested, according to TMZ. Police claimed that they found Hammer in possession of three pot cookies and one pot brownie during the bust. However, prosecutors dropped the case because Armie only allegedly had .02 ounces of weed, though he did spend a day in jail and have to pay a $1,000 bond, according to VICE. 

In the #TBT photograph posted on Instagram, Hammer captioned the pic with a cheeky comment about Texas and acknowledged that he's a bit early in reminiscing. 

"It might not be Thursday, but this throwback seems worth it... #godblesstexas," Hammer wrote on Instagram.

Hammer is certainly not the first or only celebrity to be arrested for marijuana possession in the past, nor the only one who openly admits to his taste for pot. Although he doesn't go so far as to discuss his past behavior or current preferences for the popular medicinal and relaxant herb, posting the mugshot seems to be a wink at his criminal and possibly weed-loving past. 

Previously, he joked that "it was definitely not 5:45 in the morning" when he was arrested, according to E! News. The 31-year-old actor also responded to a fan saying that "prison jumpsuits are not known for their fashion...or comfort." All in all, he seems to take his former arrest in stride, poking fun and declaring that it's "probably not the last mugshot."
