Just like the rest of society, celebrities sometimes find themselves in legal trouble. However, unlike most of us regular folks, they usually get away with the smaller offenses easier because they’re famous. But, whenever they are arrested, the media makes it both national and tabloid news. Some of these crimes that celebrities are charged with are serious, while other crimes are absolutely hilarious and/or just plain weird. We’ve decided to make a list of some of the weirdest celebrity arrests we have discovered.
10) Robert Downey Jr.
Before Downey Jr. became Iron Man, he had a few run-ins with the law. Back in 1996, not long after being charged with possession of heroin and cocaine, stemming from an arrest for speeding nearly a month earlier, he was arrested again for trespassing and possession of narcotics after he was found passed out in the bedroom of one of his neighbor’s homes. When his neighbors found him, he was in the bed with his boxer shorts and a t-shirt. It is thought that he mistook the neighbor’s home for his own even though it was 17 houses away from his.
9) Matthew McConaughey
Back in 1999, in the city of Austin, TX, the police were called in response to a complaint of noise. When they arrived on the scene, McConaughey was found listening to some loud music inside his home, while also playing his bongos naked. In his home, they found marijuana and a bong. They then arrested him on charges of drug paraphernalia and marijuana possession.
