Why Did Sebastian Daily Publish My Mugshot?

Mugshots and arrest information on Sebastian Daily.

SEBASTIAN – If you are arrested in Indian River County, chances are your mugshot might be published on Sebastian Daily.

There are a few exceptions in Sebastian, Fellsmere, and Vero Beach. Unlike other media outlets that publish all mugshots on a daily basis, we are selective on what we believe is newsworthy. We also publish this information for community awareness.

The articles we publish are based on the original affidavit provided by the arresting officer and witnesses. The mugshot and affidavit were made public by the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office. We retrieve records from the county each day. Please don’t blame our media outlet for your arrest or mugshot.

All persons arrested are charged, but are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. There are some arrests we do not report on such as single count marijuana/cannabis and DUI.

We try not to report on domestic disputes, especially if children are involved. But, there are some cases when we do. For example, if the husband and wife are having a food fight.

The agencies we follow are Sebastian Police Department, Fellsmere Police Department, Vero Beach Police Department, and the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office.

With that being said, we are not out to ruin lives or embarrass those who are arrested. Sometimes we will delete the article and the mugshot upon request.
