8 Celebrities Who Have Been to Jail
Being successful and famous does not necessarily mean that you are insured against prison and are allowed to do whatever comes to your crazy mind. It is really sad that many of our favorite stars are not aware of this. Here is the list of those who thought they could get away with their crazy and often illegal behavior.
Rapper 50 Cent was born and brought up in a family that can be hardly called exemplary, in the criminal area of New York. At the age of 12 he got his first job – selling drugs. And in 1994 he was detained by the police. He received the sentence of 3 years in prison.
After leaving the prison, he started to make music and took the pseudonym 50 Cent. He didn’t give up his dangerous lifestyle completely though. In 2002 50 Cent was arrested for possession of weapons, and in 2006 – for aggressive driving.
One of the most famous blondes of the world and the heir of the founder of popular hotel chain Paris Hilton also had some problems with the law. In 2006 she was arrested for drunken driving. She paid $1500 fine and 36-months probationary period. But in 2007 (January) she was arrested for driving with the invalid driver’s license. And in February Paris was caught overspeeding and with the deadlights off at night. After all these offenses Paris spent 23 days in prison.
Then in 2010, in August, the actress was arrested in Las Vegas. Police stopped her boyfriend’s car because a strong smell of marijuana was coming from there. When Paris got out from the car she “dropped” a packet of cocaine.
