Stars who have more arrests than awards

The lives of the rich and famous may be glamorous, but money can't buy innocence. More celebrities have been arrested 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 murdering his wife, these celebrities were more often in the news because of bad behavior than because of their success in the arts. 

The singers, actors, athletes, and other celebrities on this list are proof that looks and fame don't necessarily equal a glamorous life worth envying. The popular personalities in the photos below are notorious for their antics: drug possession, fights, even murder. Not to mention the fact that the photo taken at night during the arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol, which the next day will adorn the covers of magazines, is unlikely to be successful.

We present you a list of stars who have more arrests than awards.

No list of fallen celebrities would be complete without Lindsay Lohan. She first appeared in a movie in 1998 in the film "The Parent Trap", and the world quickly fell in love with the charming freckled 11-year-old girl. But by 2007, Lindsay had become more known for her reckless behavior.

The list of criminal records of the actress is comparable to the number of her roles in films. She was caught driving under the influence many times, charged with drug possession, assault, probation violation. A lot of noise was made by the arrest for the theft of a necklace worth $ 25,000 from a jewelry store in Venice.

His next arrest came just two years later, in 1998, when he was charged with three counts of disorderly conduct.

Robert Matthew Van Winkle, the ' 90s hit Ice Ice Baby artist, unexpectedly deserves the top spot on our list for half a dozen arrests. The musician was arrested for illegal possession of weapons, once he even threatened a homeless man.

Thus, Robert's creative achievements were forgotten, but in the criminal chronicle he became a real star.
