Take a look at this rare find, a mugshot of Prince dating back to 1980 when he was detained by police in Jackson, Mississippi over a bullhorn.

The story behind the photo says the purple one was just looking for a concert prop, as things escalated.   Dr. Fink of Prince's band The Revolution suggested a bullhorn would be a great prop to use on stage during a concert.

Prince would later find himself on a plane equipped with an emergency bullhorn right in front of him.  Dr. Fink somehow convinced to grab it and he did.

The website Feelnumb.com quotes Dr. Frink explaining the moment.

The next thing we know, the pilot comes out and announces, ‘It has come to our attention someone has removed some emergency equipment from the airplane, which is a federal offense.
