Following his arrest, DONALD Trump became the first former US president to ever take a mugshot.

After being indicted on election-related charges, the reality television star turned himself in to the police at a jail in Atlanta.

What led to Donald Trump’s arrest?

On August 24, 2023, news of his arrest woke up the United States and the rest of the world.

After his arrest in Georgia and subsequent release of his mugshot, the first ever taken by a U.S. president, the nation was in shock.

It happened as Donald Trump was being investigated by Fulton County prosecutors for allegedly trying to rig the 2020 presidential election.

This was the end result of a protracted investigation into Trump and his allies that began in December 2020 to determine whether they had broken any state laws.

They were charged with refusing to accept his defeat in the election and “knowingly and willfully participating in a conspiracy to unlawfully change the outcome of the election in favor of Trump.”

All charges against him are disputed by him.

Among them are conspiring, encouraging a public figure to break their oath of office, publishing false information, making false statements, and breaking Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) law.

The 19 defendants were each facing a total of 41 charges in their indictment.

Among the defendants listed are Georgia GOP chair David Shafer, Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Trump campaign attorneys Jenna Ellis and Sidney Powell, and the former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

In response, Donald Trump called the indictment “a travesty of justice” and criticized it.

Later, he uploaded the image of his now-famous mugshot to X, formerly known as Twitter, with the caption: “Election interference. Never give up!”

His criminal case had resulted in four arrests for him in the previous five months.

Is Donald Trump still in jail?

Mr. Trump spent a total of 20 minutes inside the jailhouse. Outside the door, a sizable group of admirers waited to witness the momentous occasion.

He reportedly posted a massive $200,000 bail bond to get out of the Atlanta jail.

He is no longer detained but is still awaiting trial, where he will have the chance to refute the allegations.

According to Bloomberg, although it hasn’t been formally confirmed, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis suggested that Trump’s trial could begin on October 23.

What is the height and weight of Donald Trump?

Trump is 215 pounds, according to his “self-reported” weight that was recorded at the Fulton County Jail.

It was noted on his booking sheet, which the jail later uploaded to its website after his arrest.

The Washington Post, however, reported that this information “may not be accurate.”

If accurate, this weight is “significantly less” than the 244 pounds he weighed at his most recent physical examination conducted by a 2020 White House physician.

Donald Trump also stated that he is 6 feet 3 inches tall, which is the height he has frequently claimed to be in public.

Politico claims that he is listed as “6ft2” on his New York driver’s license, though.
