20 Celebrities Famously Locked Behind Bars

Many celebrities live in a fantasy world where they can do whatever they want, when they want, with no harsh or immediate consequences to deal with. However, there are always those who don’t slip through the cracks and their crimes, no matter how big or small, land them behind bars. Real life became extremely real for this list of 20 celebrities who spent time in the slammer. The grass is not always greener on the other side.

Mark Walberg

Would you believe that Mark Walberg was charged with attempted murder and assault? Mark spent roughly 45 days in prison for brutally beating down a Vietnamese man with a wooden stick.

Robert Downey Jr.

If someone can get arrested for passing out in a bed, it would be none other than Robert Downy Jr. He spent an year in jail for trespassing on his neighbors’ property and then passing out in their master bedroom. He was under the influence of a rather strange drug, which must have been pretty good because Robert missed a drug check ordered by the court, which incidentally gave him more time.

Wesley Snipes

Wesley Snipes, the man that brought the comic “Blade” to life wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed when it came to financial planning. On top of that, Snipes had been evading taxes. This landed him in prison for three years.

50 Cent

Before he made millions as a rap superstar and entrepreneur, 50 Cent was caught with possession of drugs and guns in his home. He was sentenced to a total of six months.
