Drugs are one of the many options that come with the fabulous Hollywood lifestyle; the hard-partying ways of young Hollywood stars seem to get worse as new generations present themselves. The ever-present appearance of drugs makes it hard for those young starlets to control the temptations and the peer-pressure that comes along with their way of life. Then again, all good things must come to an end and unluckily, that end can sometimes involve cops, charges, jail time and probation. There is never a lack of stories surfacing in the media in regards to stars being arrested for drug possession, DUI’s and almost everything in between; even celebrities held in the highest regard can be caught at their lowest point. Actor Robert Downey Jr. has a phenomenal career but no one would be able to guess that he was once curled up in a gutter feigning for drugs, only to be later arrested for possession. Or once known as the bad boy of R&B, Bobby Brown has had several run-ins with the police that ended in classic drug charges. Although these arrests seem like moves intended for armatures, the rich and famous never fail to get caught and charged with drug possession. A lot of these stories get swept under the rug simply because these celebrities can afford some of the best lawyers money can buy, and the excuses are endless; everything from 'they were not my drugs' to 'they belong to my friend' and even accusations of drugs being planted on them by the arresting officers. Here is a list of 12 celebrities who have been caught right-handed with drugs.

Rapper Nelly is the latest celebrity to be busted with drugs and like the hundreds before him, he too claims they were not his. Nelly is blaming his drug possession on the “shady characters” he allowed onto his tour bus. None-the-less, he was still arrested for possession of methamphetamine (which his lawyer disputes as actually being ecstasy) and marijuana. Nelly does not strike most people as a man who would be involved with meth, however the marijuana sounds plausible. Either way, nothing good can come from having 15-20 people on a tour bus because there is always that one friend who takes things too far.
