We see our favorite (and least favorite) celebrities in movies, on TV, and in magazines, but sometimes, we also see them in a different way. Celebrities, like the rest of us, sometimes make bad decisions and end up arrested in the back of a police car.
If you think the life of a celebrity is all glamour and fame, think again, because these mugshots are far from the red carpet. Get ready to find out what landed these famous faces behind bars. The crime may not be what you thought! You won’t believe who ended up on the list…
- 2018: Arrested for punching a man in the jaw is a dispute over a car spot
- 2014: Arrested in New York City for cycling the wrong way on a one-way street
- 1995: Arrested for allegedly hitting a paparazzi in LA
In November 2018, Actor Alec Baldwin was arrested and charged with assault and harassment. Why? You ask. Because of a dispute over a parking spot. And that’s according to New York police. The “other guy” is a 49-year-old man, and he sustained an injury to the left jaw after being punched.
However, some tweets, which seem to have come from Alec himself deny it all. “Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today’s story. However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false. I wanted to go on the record stating as much. I realize that it has become a sport to tag people with as many negative charges and defaming allegations as possible for the purposes of clickbait entertainment. Fortunately, no matter how reverberating the echos, it doesn’t make the statements true.”

Once the “TV father” of America and the world, Bill Cosby was the one to look up to when having family problems. Or at least that was what we wanted to believe. The perfect family on The Cosby Show was too perfect or even sci-fi in the eyes of 2018 viewers, but back then, it was funny, smart and full of bits of advice to help us all.
No one could have thought that behind that smiling face hid a sexual predator. We first heard about it around 2000 when complaints started to surface against the actor but they were all hushed down. Then in 2014 they got stronger until the #METOO campaign really brought them out to light. He is now sentenced to 3-10 years in prison.
