HOLLYWOOD — 2010 has seen its share of celebrity, sports star and political figure arrests. So let’s go back a bit, (a count down if you will), to see how those on our list of 10 fared in the legal-go-round battle with… the jail turnstile.
(We’ve included several previously blogged about here on KeepBailing.com However, this is not an exhaustive list.)
#10 - Chris Klein
Chris Klein, best known for his role in American Pie, was arrested for driving under the influence on June 16th just after 3:15 AM on an alleged DUI. He was driving on the 101 Freeway, with his dog. He was later bailed out of the Van Nuys Jail. It’s reported his blood alcohol level was just about three times the legal limit in California, which is .08 percent. Rovers should never let their owners drive drunk!
# 9 – Russel Brand
Our newly married, Mr. Katy Perry was arrested for misdemeanor battery for an alleged scuffle at LAX with some over zealous Papparazzi. The couple was passing through the security checks when an attempt was made to photograph Katy’s skirt. We’re happy to report that Mr. Brand definitely made it to the Greek on time.
# 8 - Joey Porter
The Arizona Cardinals star Linebacker ended up in the Bakersfield Jail, arrested on misdemeanor DUI. He allegedly resisted arrest and battered a peace officer. Reportedly, it all happened outside of a Taco Bell at when Porter was asked for his license by a CHP officer. He refused and rolled up the window. He then made the unfortunate mistake of ‘slapping’ the officer’s hand. Ouch!
# 7 – Senator Roy Ashburn
State Sen. Roy Ashburn was pulled over by CHP officers after they noticed him driving erratically at the wheel of a state Senate-issued Chevy Tahoe. When stopped, officers noticed symptoms of alcohol intoxication. He was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors. One for driving with a blood alcohol level in excess of .08% and DUI.
# 6 – Redmond O’Neal
Redmond O’Neal, who happens to be the son of the late Charlie’s Angels actress Farrah Fawcett and actor Ryan O’Neal, was remanded back to jail after violating his probation for a series of drug offenses. O’Neal was sentenced to a 30-day, in-custody drug-treatment program thanks to his inability to stay clean.
#5 – Jason Wahler
The former realty star of “The Hills” was reportedly arrested a sixth time for drunk driving by the Newport Beach Police Department. Wahler was stopped and handcuffed by police around 11:00 p.m. on March 20, 2010, but he was released without bail on his own recognizance (“O.R.”) hours later.
#4 – Randy and Evie Quaid
The Quaids have been in and out of the news headlines in the past year or more – first for allegedly defrauding a Santa Barbara Hotel, then not showing up for their court dates. In the world of jails, judges and laws, if you’re asked by a judge to show up to court you’d better go, or there will be no ‘get out of jail free’ cards. Seems like they had to play the game over and over again.
#3 – David Cassidy
“Come on, get happy?” David was arrested on a DUI charge in Florida in November. The Partridge Family cast royalty was in his Mercedes Benz when he was stopped for weaving in and out of traffic, almost causing an accident. Oops, police also found a half empty bottle of bourbon in the car. Maybe he was rehearsing for a new role?
#2 – Paris Hilton
Paris, oh Paris. Arrested again in South Africa for allegedly smoking pot at the World Cup Match. Later, she was arrested in Las Vegas for cocaine possession. For a girl who seems to have it all, the world just doesn’t seem to be enough.

Redmond O’Neal, son of the late Charlie’s Angels actress Farrah Fawcett and film actor Ryan O’Neal, was returned to jail after violating his probation for a series of drug offenses.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Tynan sentenced O’Neal to a 30-day, in-custody drug-treatment program thanks to his inability to stay clean. O’Neal remains in jail without bail pending a February 2nd hearing.
Judge Tynan warned Redmond that he would go to state prison for six years if he violated his probation, back in November. “It actually strikes me that you haven’t got a clue as to what recovery means. It is a lifelong commitment and it’s grinding, hard, painful work,” Tynan told O’Neal. “You’ve got one responsibility and that’s to yourself — to get clean and sober.”
O’Neal was on a 24 hour pass from a rehab center – his first since Read more »
