16 Celebrities Who've Been Busted With A DUI

There's nothing glamorous about The Jailhouse Rock blues.

Famous people are cool. Drinking and driving is not. Check out this list of 16 celebs whose inability to “stop” left them with a one-way ticket to The Jailhouse Rock singing the DUI blues.

1. Abby Wambach

Abby Wambach is the newest celebrity to join this unfortunate list with her April 2nd arrest. Wambach pled guilty to DUI charges, and is now entering a “diversion program.” She apologized for her actions, but she was in Portland-- it could've just been some really strong kombucha.

2. Paris Hilton

The only thing less shocking than the fact that Paris Hilton has a DUI is the fact that her music career never took off. She was chased down by the ole flashing lights of Los Angeles in 2007. 

3. Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson was busted in 2007 for driving under the influence of alcohol and cocaine while leaving a nightclub in Mesa, AZ. If you think that’s bad, take another look at his facial tattoos. 

4. Heather Locklear

Heather Lochlear was arrested in Sunny Santa Barbara, California in 2008 and eventually pled guilty to driving while impaired on prescription drugs. Then she swam in a swimming pool and made all the other girls jealous. Just kidding, but if she did do that, it would be so Amanda Woodward of her #AmIRiiiiight? 

5. Khloe Kardashian

What would an internet article be without a mention of the Kardashians? Khloe Kardashian was arrested in LA in 2007 for drunk driving at the age off 24. She was sentenced to 30 days in jail, but was released after only three hours because the system works. 

6. Michelle Rodriguez

Michelle Rodriguez served jail time in Honolulu after her 2005 arrest. She claims she had only learned to drive for a “racing project” (which we assume was The Fast and The Furious) and then she got Lost. Get it? She was on Lost

7. Shia LaBeouf

I love Shia LaBeouf as much as every time I try to spell his name. Shia “Beefcake” LaBeouf was arrested in 2008 for drunk driving when he rolled his car into another vehicle resulting in minor injuries. He has since claimed to have Transformed into a significantly better role model, but we’re all pretty sure there’s going to be a sequel. 

8. John Stamos

John Stamos, Beverly Hills, 2015: Full House meets The Big House. Cue sentimental music while the LAPD teach Uncle Jesse a lesson about drinking too much of his special juice. 

8. Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber got out of a 2014 DUI in Miami by making a $50,000 donation to a youth charity and completing twelve hours of an anger management course. It didn’t help. 

10. Busta Rhymes

Busta Rhymes was arrested in May 2007 in NYC for drunk driving and having “excessively tinted windows” on his car. Busta Rhymes did not serve time. He’s just fine. Make it clap. 

11. Sam Shepard

Finally, a playwright makes the tabloids! By 2007, playwright Sam Shepard had an Oscar, a Pulitzer, and a DUI after his 2007 arrest. To be fair, he claims he only had two tequila shots. It was also 7:45pm, and he acted in The Notebook. 

12. Flo Rida

It’s 4am. Miami Beach, 2001. You’re driving a car worth $1.7million dollars. Your BAC is more than twice the legal limit. You admit to a police officer that you’ve had “a few drinks.” Your name is also the name of the state you’re in (Flo Rida). You put a space in the middle of the word for no reason. You love to party, but hate wearing sleeves. 

13. Seth Gilliam

Seth Gilliam aka the priest dude on The Walking Dead was arrested in Peachtree, CA for driving his car upwards of 107mph. In his defense, his dayjob is trying to get away from zombies… 

14. Kevin Hart

Technically, Kevin Hart was arrested on two DUI accounts, but he pled guilty to one to have the other dropped. He later gave a public Hart-felt apology and promised to straighten up, though he still insists he's still a stand up dude.

15. Lindsay Lohan

Even though her track record is far from spotless, I can’t help but fall in love with all things Lindsay Lohan. She was arrested just two weeks after being released from rehab in 2007. 

16. Mel Gibson

You know how being drunk makes some people super lovable and sweet? Not Mel Gibson! During his 2006 DUI arrest, he reportedly made sexist comments about a female officer, and stated that “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world,” before apologizing the next day via his publicist. Mazeltov, Mel. L’hiam!
