Celebrities With the Most Arrest Records

Sometimes living your life in the public eye is stressful. That's what celebrities have to go through on a daily basis, especially today with the rise of pop culture and entertainment news organizations. Movie stars, musicians, even social media stars now have almost every aspect of their life examined by the larger public. Sometimes that pressure is too much for one individual, and it causes them to lash out by making unsound decisions. Sometimes the public craves a "fallen from grace" story that ends up becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Lindsey Lohan, for example, can't seem to get out of her own way. After a DUI, you think she would learn her lesson and not want to have to go through the embarrassment of those public proceedings again. Yet, only a couple months later, she was booked for another DUI. Much criticism was given to the fact that she may have received preferential treatment. Sometimes judges may think they are providing someone famous a favor by going a little lighter than usual, so as not to blow things up in the press. But that preferential treatment may make celebrities unremorseful and willing to commit the offense again, exactly because they didn't have severe repercussions.

Some celebs, like Foxy Brown, may have continued run-ins with the law because it builds up their reputation that they are trying to seek. Her five arrests give her rap persona, at least in the public eye, street cred. But not everything is what it seems. Martin Sheen's over 60 arrests are for more altruistic causes, typically for protesting things.
