It was no laughing matter on Saturday when Los Angeles traffic police arrested comedian and actor Kevin Hart on suspicion of drunken driving. He isn’t the first celeb to run astray of the law, though. We rounded up a few other famous offenders.
This isn’t Lindsay Lohan’s only mug shot, mind you. It is, however her most recent! The charge? Violating her probation — this girl’s been around the (prison cell) block! — and failing a court-mandated drug test.
While in North Carolina in 2001, Vince Vaughn landed in the clink for fighting in public. During the brawl outside of a local area bar, Vince’s co-star Steve Buscemi was stabbed multiple times. The fellas were in town filming Domestic Disturbance… ironic, no?
Around 1 a.m. on an early Tuesday in 2007, Los Angeles police hauled Kiefer Sutherland to central booking when the 24 star made an illegal U-turn and — subsequently — failed a sobriety test.
Girl’s got some attitude! Or at least she does in this 2006 mug shot stemming from DUI charges filed in Hawaii where she was filming Lost. Interestingly enough, it wasn’t the DUI that got the most attention — it was her decision to do five days in jail over 240 hours of community service.
In 2009, Burn Notice star Jeffrey Donovan got, well, burned by Miami police for — what else? — suspicion of drunken driving. The actor, who refused to take a Breathalyzer, told officers, “The only mistake I made tonight was drinking Benadryl with three glasses of wine. I really think I’m only borderline and not too drunk."
In October 2007, cops collared Kid Rock for allegedly beating some dude up outside of a Waffle House in DeKalb County, Georgia. Classy, Kid… classy. Apparently, the fight started when someone interrupted Kid’s meal to speak with a member of Kid’s crew.
In her 2007 DUI arrest mug shot, Khloe Kardashian makes getting arrested look good — if there were an award for best mug shot, she’d have more than a fighting chance at it. Sadly, batting those beautiful eyelashes couldn’t keep Khloe out of trouble. She was later sentenced to jail (although that lasted, like, a sec) for violating her DUI probation.
