It seems like some celebrities believe they’re a law unto themselves. They’ll do whatever they want, whenever they want, and just hope they don’t get caught. Even when they do get caught, most celebs seem to get off lightly. What could land us normal people jail time tends to be a slap on the wrist if you’re famous. Here are some of the celebrities who have been in trouble with the law – including some repeat offenders.
When is this woman not in trouble with the law? On Memorial Day weekend back in 2007, Lindsay was arrested for drink driving. Her mug shot was not pretty! A few weeks later, she was arrested again. This time for drink and drug charges. Her punishment for the crimes? Just 84 minutes in prison. She then missed a court hearing after partying in Cannes, back in 2010. Cue another court appearance and this time a monitoring tag was put around her ankle. Since all this trouble, Lindsay has tried to get back on the straight and narrow. However, she has been back in court several times over the last few years.
Yet another repeat offender! Justin Bieber has been arrested several times since his first incident in 2012, for reckless driving around his street. One of the most talked about run-ins with the law was when he was caught driving under the influence in 2014, with a license that had expired. According to reports he also give the police a bit of a hard time when they tried to handcuff him. Bieber sought legal assistance for his DUI charge and managed to settle it on a plea case. However, he is still on probation for several other incidents since that. It looks like this kid will never learn!
This guy has had a bit of a funny year. He tried launching some kind of art show back in 2014 and even turned up on the red carpet wearing a paper bag on his head. As if all that wasn’t bad enough, he was arrested back in June of last year. According to reports, he was charged with trespassing, harassment and disorderly conduct. Why? He gatecrashed a showing of Cabaret on Broadway. How rock and roll! He has since sought help for some of his problems, which he believes are the reason he’s been a bit wild.
How this guy has avoided prison before, we’ll never know! However, Chris Brown had to spend some time in jail back in 2014, after violating the rules of a court ordered rehab programme. This comes after a string of issues, however. He was charged with assaulting Rihanna back in 2009 and put on parole. He then broke that parole by hitting someone else back in 2013. He was then ordered to attend a rehab programme. He then broke the rules. Guess what? He got into a lot of trouble! You can only have so many chances. Even if you are famous!
Did you know that all these celebrities had spent time in the slammer? It looks like it may be time for many of them to start afresh. Nobody likes a criminal.
