Joey, have you ever been to a Turkish prison?

There are worse things that can happen when traveling, I’m sure, than getting arrested and thrown in a foreign prison, but I can’t think of anything right now. This is such a regular occurrence that studies have been done and cities have been ranked. Here are the top 10 foreign cities for Americans to get arrested, along with the number taken into custody:

  1. Tijuana: 520
  2. Guadalajara: 416
  3. Nuevo Laredo: 359
  4. London: 274
  5. Mexico City: 208
  6. Toronto: 183
  7. Nassau, Bahamas: 108
  8. Merida, Mexico: 99
  9. Nogales, Mexico: 96
  10. Hong Kong: 90

It’s no surprise that 6 of the 10 cities are in Mexico. What with the close proximity to the U.S. and it being a prime drinking spot for underage revelers, I’m surprised the numbers aren’t higher. So tell me, have you ever been thrown in jail in a foreign country? [via World Hum]
