Celebrities are under a lot of pressure, and like any human, they make mistakes. In this article, we’ll go over ten stories of stars who made some seriously questionable decisions in the 2010s.
We don’t know if you remember, but back in 2010, the king of uptown funk was arrested for possession of cocaine. The worst part? It was in a Las Vegas bathroom. He has since admitted to the press that he felt regret, but it wasn’t his first time using drugs.
Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth were pulled over in Atlanta for driving on the wrong side of the lane. She might not have been arrested if she didn’t get out of the car and start arguing with the police. She was brought in on a charge of disorderly conduct.
We can’t talk about celebrity arrests without mentioning the hot mess express Queen Snooki. The Jersey Shore star was arrested in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, on a charge of disorderly conduct.
The image is unforgettable- Snooki being hauled away in cuffs and wearing an appropriately vulgar T-Shirt.
Nate from Gossip Girl, instead, the actor Chace Crawford, was arrested in 2010 for possession of marijuana. He eventually struck a plea deal and was ordered to complete community service.
No one was surprised when Justin Bieber was arrested in 2014 for a DUI in Miami Beach. The child star had been making headlines for his bad behavior for quite some time. Not only was he charged with drunk driving, but he also resisted arrest.
Later on, he accepted his past and agreed to move on, after getting roasted on Comedy Central on his birthday.
In 2012 Singer Fiona Apple was arrested in Sierra Blanca, Texas, for possession of hashish. She’s not the only celebrity stoner who’s been caught in the border town. Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson were also arrested here.
Uncle Jesse was driving under the influence on June 12, 2015, in Santa Monica, California. After getting arrested, he pled guilty for a misdemeanor and was sentenced to three years of probation. He then checked himself into rehab for substance abuse.
Michael Phelps is America’s Golden Boy, but he’s not perfect. Back in 2014, he was arrested in Baltimore for a DUI. After he pled guilty, he received a suspended sentence and probation. Following his conviction, he told the public that he did not want to be alive anymore. We are thankful that he is.
Since then, Phelps has said that he hasn’t drunk alcohol since his arrest.
Shia LaBeouf has had a few run-ins with the law. In 2017 he was arrested for public drunkenness in Savannah, Georgia. The police said the bad-behavior started getting out of control when no one would give him a cigarette.
This was on top of two other arrests. In 2015 it was for public intoxication in Texas. In 2008, it was because of a DUI in California.
The 2010s were a rough decade for Golf star Tiger Woods, with a mix of adultery and substance abuse. In August of 2017, Woods was pulled over in Jupiter, Florida, on suspicion of DUI. The police reported that he had five different drugs in his system.
Woods told the police at the time of his arrest; he was prescribed all of the medications. Even though he has ingested a cocktail of drugs, he got off with a slap of a wrist. His Florida DUI attorney got him off as long as he agreed to stop self-medicating.
Driving under the influence is unacceptable, especially if you’re a wealthy Hollywood star who can have a personal chauffeur at their beck-and-call. For everyone else, take an uber.
