14 celebrities who have spent time in prison
The Designated Survivor star isn't known for acting presidential when the cameras are turned off. He was arrested for drunk driving in 2007 after failing a sobriety test, his fourth arrest for the same charge since 1989. Sutherland spent 48 days in jail after pleading no contest, but obviously didn't learn his lesson. He turned himself in to police in 2009 after headbutting a fashion designer after a fundraiser. Police dropped the charges after Sutherland and his victim released a joint apology.
It’s one thing to get arrested, but thrown in jail is another story. Even celebrities get in trouble with the law and, even though their sentences may seem to be less severe than they should be, they are not above spending time in the slammer. Some of these celebrities have recovered from their legal troubles, but others are still suffering from their actions. Take Robert Downey Jr, for example. He is currently one of the largest movie stars in Hollywood, but most people don’t know about his tragic history involving drugs. This list will cover 20 famous icons who have served time behind bars for controversial reasons.
