Bruno Mars is one of those guys that looks like he’s still in high school so it’s a bit surprising that he was arrested for cocaine possession. He was nabbed in 2010 with 2.6 grams of coke. To make matters worse, at the time of his arrest he apparently played the “do you know who I am?” card.

 

Will Smith

Will Smith is another one of those actors who have a squeaky clean image but isn’t all that clean. Turns out he actually has a bit of a violent past. Smith was arrested back in 1989 for aggravated assault. Worse yet, it turns out Smith didn’t do the attacking but ordered his bodyguard to do it.

 

Jay-Z

Jay-Z

Jay-Z has about as clean cut of an image as a rap mogul can have these days. Back in 1999 he allowed his temper to get the best of him and was arrested for third-degree assault after stabbing record producer Lance Rivera at a Manhattan listening party.
