This may come as a surprise to some of you, but when you give a person millions of dollars and tons of free time, they can get up to some pretty strange stuff.
What type of person has oodles of cash and enough time to think of crazy hijinks? Celebrities of course. The only problem is that some celebrities go a little too far with their chosen hobbies, and they find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Then we get to find out what creepy pastimes these people have from police reports.
Celebrity arrests are almost always golden reading material, but some arrests stand out for being, well, standing out. Usually naked.
Let’s take a look at a few more memorable celebrity arrests.
7. Matthew McConaughey
Picture this scene: it’s 1999, Austin Texas, and the police have just been called to respond to a noise complaint. Officers arrive at the scene to see Matthew McConaughey stoned out of his mind, listening to music loud enough to drown out the space shuttle, and playing the bongos in the nude. The cops arrested him for drug paraphernalia (only illegal in Texas, of course) and marijuana possession.
6. Edward Furlong
It’s been a long time since we could call Edward Furlong, star of Terminator 2, a celebrity and still keep a straight face, but his arrest is so insane it just had to be included here.
In 2004, Furlong was arrested for public intoxication after holing up in a Kentucky grocery store. With the police on their way, Furlong was busy stealing lobsters out of the seafood section and trying to escort them back to the ocean. After the police arrived he grabbed the lobsters and tried to spin them to freedom.
5. Ozzy Osbourne
We return to Texas for this tale of Ozzy’s arrest. Back in 1982, he was apprehended for urinating on a statue commemorating the Alamo, but things got even weirder when police arrived and found that he was wearing a dress that belonged to his wife. After the arrest, San Antonio barred him from coming back for 10 years and only lifted the ban after he donated $10,000 to a non-profit organization in charge of maintaining the monument.
4. Lindsay Lohan
Why are men always way more heavily represented in crazy run-ins with the law? Well, we have one person representing the fairer sex, although this story is just as crazy as anything the men get up to.
In 2007, Lohan was arrested after a wild high-speed chase involving her former assistant and A LOT of a drinking. After a night on the town, she commandeered a car with three guys she’d been out drinking with, and chased down her assistant all along the Pacific Coast Highway at speeds exceeding 100mph. She was later busted for a DUI along with cocaine possession.
This would also be far from Lohan’s last close encounter with the fuzz.
3. Charlie Sheen
There’s just no way you can have weird arrest stories without Charlie Sheen rearing his coked-out head. In 2010, police responded to a disturbance at a hotel Sheen was staying in. According to reports, Sheen was having sex with a porn star when he lost his wallet, so he then began throwing furniture while screaming racial epithets. As you do.
This happened AFTER he had been found naked in a men’s room stall at a restaurant earlier that same evening with a face white as a snowman. I’ll let you guess why.

2. Eddie Murphy
Nowadays, this might not be as much of a story, but back in 1997, it was headline news. Late at night, or early morning—depending on when you think 4:45 a.m is—Eddie Murphy got a hankering that only transsexual man-love could solve. While trying to pick up said transsexual hooker, he was noticed by police and arrested. He wasn’t charged since no actual transaction took place, but it did put a strain on his marriage.
1. Paul Reubens
We couldn’t leave without even mentioning the most infamous celebrity arrest of them all. In July 1991, Pee-Wee Herman was arrested in a Florida adult theater for masturbating during the film. The theater may have been for “adult movies”, but self-gratification is still illegal when done outside the home.
The arrest would tank Pee-Wee Herman as a character, and Reubens’ career as a whole. He’d continue to work in television and film, but would retreat from the public eye.
