Stars who have more arrests than rewards
The life of the rich and famous can be glamorous, but you can’t buy innocence for money. More celebrities were under arrest than you can imagine. From the notorious Lindsay Lohan, who was charged with four crimes in two different states, to O.J. Simpson, who was accused of killing his wife - these celebrities appeared more often in the news because of bad behavior than because of their successes in art.
Singers, actors, athletes and other celebrities on this list are proof that appearance and fame are not necessarily equal to the glamorous life that deserves envy. Popular individuals in the photos below are notorious for their antics: drug possession, fights, even murder. Not to mention the fact that a photo taken at night during detention for drunk driving, which will decorate the covers of magazines the next day, is unlikely to be successful.
We present you a list of stars who have more arrests than awards.

No list of fallen celebrities will be complete without Lindsay Lohan. She first appeared in the cinema in 1998 in the film “Parent Trap”, and the world quickly fell in love with a charming, freckled 11-year-old girl. But by 2007, Lindsay became better known for her reckless behavior.
The list of convictions of the actress is comparable to the number of her roles in the movie. She was drunk driving many times, accused of drug possession, assault and violation of probation. Much noise was made by the arrest for the theft of a necklace worth $ 25,000 from a jewelry store in Venice.
Only when we thought that Lindsay finally calmed down, in 2014, she sabotaged her own reality show, which was produced by Oprah Winfrey. It is safe to say that whenever the name Lohan appears in the headlines, it is a scandal.
Charlie Sheen deserved the title of the bad guy thanks to numerous connections with prostitutes, accusations of domestic violence and other immoral antics. In 2011, he was fired from the series “Two and a half people” for “dangerous self-destructive behavior”, according to a letter issued by the legal counsel of Warner Bros Television.Simply put, Charlie Sheen has abused drugs.

R. Kelly, the king of R & B, was arrested three times in his 27-year career, which made him more famous due to conviction, not music.

His next arrest occurred only two years later, in 1998, when he was charged with three charges of hooliganism.
But the most famous and shocking arrest of Kelly was in 2002, when the videotape of the joys of R. Kelly and a 14-year-old girl became widespread.

Kelly was found innocent on all counts.
Although Jay Z cannot win the award for the maximum number of arrests on this list (and definitely won more real awards than the rest),his criminal charges make him one of the worst offenders.
