We’re used to the so-called Fashion Police calling out celebrities both on and off the red carpet. What about celebrities getting stopped by the real police, though? Fashion faux-pas do often get celebrities in trouble but there’s been many instances when a celeb’s behaviour almost put them behind bars. Vanessa Hudgens, for instance, just got fined $1,000 for carving her initials on a Sedona rock on a Valentine’s Day date gone wrong. Turns out, defacing a natural feature on U.S. Forest Service land is a crime worthy of punishment. From minor offences (anyone remember Ariana Grande licking that doughnut?) to some more serious ones (DUIS and insider trading), we’ve broken down some of the most notorious celebrities and their sometimes strange, sometimes predictable legal missteps.

Last summer, Ariana Grande got in trouble for licking donuts in a bakery and putting them back on the counter (yuck!). She wasn’t charged for intentionally tempering food, but the donut shop where the incident occurred suffered from a drop in its public health rating.

Everyone’s heard about Solange Knowles’ infamous elevator incident with Jay-Z from the Met Gala two years ago. People are still trying to wrap their heads around what happened and if it was about truly about “Becky with the good hair.”

It is no surprise to learn about Shia Labeouf being involved in a multitude of incidents involving public intoxication and disorderly conduct. He’s been making headlines for years on his strange and erratic behaviour which includes driving under the influence and trespassing.

Last July, Diddy got arrested at UCLA after getting into an altercation with his son’s football coach. Apparently, Diddy didn’t like how his son, Justin, was being treated. He ended up posting bail but he’s banned from watching any more of Justin’s games.

The fact that our favourite DIY queen, Martha Stewart, lasted in jail is a shock. Back in 2004, Martha was found guilty in regards to obstructing the government’s investigation on her selling of an ImClone Systems Inc. stock. She ended up serving five months in prison but successfully bounced back into heading her craft empire.

Back in the 70s, Mick Jagger and his fellow Rolling Stones, were arrested for assaulting a photographer in an airport. The incident delayed a concert in Boston and the mayor was in charge of telling fans outside the venue of The Rolling Stones that they were on their way.

Let’s be frank, we wouldn’t trust Paris Hilton behind the wheel. She’s been caught driving under the influence, driving without a license, and getting into a number of hit and runs. She was also arrested in 2010 for possession of cocaine.

Lindsay Lohan’s wholesome days of being a child star are long gone. She’s has been in trouble with the law on more than a few occasions. In fact, rumour has it that’s she’s got 6 mug shots from drunk driving and drug charges.

Winona Ryder is one of the most iconic actresses of the 90’s. In 2001, though, she was under the spotlight for the wrong reasons: shoplifting. She apparently stole over $5,000 worth of goods from Saks Fifth Avenue.

Believe it or not, clean cut Matthew McConaughey got in trouble with the law back in the 90s. He threw a wild party, apparently, that included him dancing around naked in his backyard. After a neighbour called the cops on his shenanigans, Matthew was arrested for possession of marijuana and disturbing the peace.
