UPDATE: Former President Donald Trump was booked into Fulton County Jail Thursday afternoon. As of 5 p.m., Trump is listed at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, according to jail records.
Former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani surrendered to authorities Wednesday, and jail records listed him at 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, according to The Washington Post. Later that day, for an unknown reason, those numbers changed to 5-foot-11 and 230 pounds.

However, people aren’t just paying attention to the expected arrest. They are curious to see Trump’s Fulton County mugshot, which is expected to list his height and weight. Sportsbooks are joining in on the fun.
There has since been intrigue about how much the 6-foot-3 Trump weighs since officially leaving office in 2021. So much so that oddsmakers have placed betting props of how much the 45th United States president will weigh on the day of his arrest.
The over/under betting prop for Trump is 278.5 pounds, according to BetOnline. As of Wednesday, the odds for him to weigh over 278.5 pounds is -110 and -130 for below 278.5 pounds.
The betting prop of 278.5 pounds may seem high considering what Trump weighed in 2020 when he was in office. According to The Washington Post, Trump weighed in at 244 pounds a little more than three years ago.
Trump has had a history of fat-shaming those who speak out against him, most recently former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
“Christie, he’s eating right now. He can’t be bothered,” Trump said earlier this month.
Christie — not Trump — is expected to take part in the first Republican debate Wednesday evening.
