There's no quicker way to humanize celebrities than to learn about all of the horrendous mistakes they've made, and all the times they've swerved onto the wrong side of the law. Lucky for you, we've compiled a list of the most troublesome stars who've been taken into custody, sometimes repeatedly.
'Trap Queen' rapper Fetty Wap was arrested in October 2021 and charged with "conspiring to distribute and possess controlled substances" after he and five others allegedly transported and distributed drugs, including cocaine, heroin and fentanyl, in Long Island, according to the indictment. Fetty was released in November on US$500,000 bail, until he was recently arrested again in Newark, New Jersey on August 8. He was indicted in federal court after prosecutors obtained a video recording of a FaceTime call from December 2021 in which Fetty wielded a gun and repeatedly threatened to kill someone (whom he referred to as "a rat") over the phone, ET reports. With this second arrest, a judge revoked Fetty's bail from the first. Now, the rapper has pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy to possess and distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine, CNN reports.
