Celebrities. They've got money, cars, clothes, fans, glamorous parties with A-listers and…a rap sheet? That’s right, folks. The rich and famous know how to get in trouble with the law like everyone else, the only difference is that sometimes throwing their name out will lower their sentence or let them walk free. Hey, at least they will always have their souvenir mugshot to prove their bad-ass status. Most of the time it’s public intoxication, disorderly conduct, or resisting arrest. Sometimes it’s a much more serious crime like physically attacking someone, trading insider secrets, or murder.
As the stories unfold, we stare at the TV or printed article in awe that someone of such high stature, who could be someone’s role model, could commit such a crime. Below is a compilation of the most memorable celebrity arrests to date that we have had the opportunity to witness. If you ever think you’re having a bad day, just remember, a celebrity’s bad day is public knowledge and plastered on every magazine, news broadcast, social media platform and the internet. Kind of makes your problems not seem so bad, doesn’t it?

18 O.J. Simpson - Accused Of Murder
One of the most publicized cases in history is the O.J. Simpson trial for the alleged murder of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and friend, Ron Goldman. Simpson hired an A-class defense team including Johnny Cochran, Robert Shapiro, and Robert Kardashian. They argued the evidence was mishandled and therefore could be contaminated. Cochran had Simpson put on the black gloves found at the scene of the murder. The gloves were too small to fit his hands.

1 R. Kelly - The Wrong Kind Of Adult Entertainment
Kelly is a famous R&B singer who made a big splash with catchy jams such as ‘Ignition’ and ‘Snake’. His fans (and the world for that matter) were beyond shocked to see such a successful artist being arrested in Polk County and being charged with 21 counts of child x-rated films. After the sheriff's department in Florida received a pile of sex tapes starring R. Kelly and a different girl in each video, four more lawsuits for rape were leveled against the star. The videos, stated one officer, were "rapes in the making." R. Kelly was acquitted of all twenty-one counts. He has agreed to settle two of the four lawsuit allegations, but will fight the others.
