Vince Vaughn was apprehended and charged with assault while shooting 2001’s Domestic Disruption.
At 2:30 a.m., Vaughn asked another customer to step outside, and a crowd of 40-50 individuals in no position to run heavy equipment followed. Remarkably, Vaughn and the other guy ended up shaking hands, however then, things took a sudden and violent turn … towards costar Steve Buscemi.
Another customer, Timothy Fogerty, is reported to have screamed, “Who wishes to get sliced?” before brandishing a knife at Buscemi. After the Fargo star tried to kick the knife out of his hand, the man “savagely assaulted” Buscemi, cutting his face, neck, and hands. Thankfully, Buscemi was hurried to a local emergency room where he was treated. He later on informed GQ, “I came close to death. That was probably the closest I’ve been, besides being struck by a bus and a car.”
In the chaos instantly following the knife attack, Vaughn and Rosenberg got into battles with locals, and cops apprehended them. Vaughn and Rosenberg were quickly taken to prison and later on charged with attack, but had the charges dropped after they agreed never ever to return to a bar in Wilmington and receive alcohol therapy. Fogerty, on the other hand, got 180 days in jail and 3 years probation for his attack on Buscemi.
Eliza Dushku and Jesse Bradford were apprehended– and jailed!– while on a trip to Tijuana in the middle of recording the 2000 cheerleading opus Bring It On.
“It was before among the outdoor scenes– I believe it was the vehicle wash scene– they had barely made it to set, and all that info was kept from me since, why fill my head with such nonsense?” Reed continued. “The actors made it to set and were shooting. It was just after the reality I learned there was such a remarkable story. I want to make a motion picture about that night: cheerleaders gone wild in Mexico!”
It must be included that star Kirsten Dunst was simply 17 at the time and remained blissfully far from all of the off-set debauchery!
Shia LaBeouf was jailed for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct in the middle of shooting The Peanut Butter Falcon.
Despite his arrest, the production managed to continue continuous. LaBeouf– who had been arrested previously for disorderly conduct– informed the Los Angeles Times this arrest was his striking “bottom barrel” moment, including, “I got out of prison, walked onto a movie set. Nobody wished to speak with me. Everybody was looking down, and me and him had to go get on a raft and film the remainder of the motion picture.”
The “him” LaBeouf referred to was his talented co-star Zack Gottsagen, a star with Down syndrome who, according to LaBeouf, was his “cheerleader” and “provided absolutely nothing but straight love.”
The Peanut Butter Falcon was a surprise hit, both critically and commercially, upon its release. LaBeouf, nevertheless, has since been charged with misdemeanor battery and petty theft over a June 12, 2020 battle with a male. He was likewise sued by his ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs– who he dated after recording The Peanut Butter Falcon— for sexual battery, assault, and infliction of psychological distress.
Sean Penn was detained after punching an additional on the set of his 1988 police drama Colors.
The production was taking a break from shooting a scene at Venice Beach when an extra called Jeffrey Klein, who had actually been hired to skateboard past Penn and co-star Robert Duvall, chose to take a couple of images of the 2 Hollywood legends.
Why was he on probation, you ask? Well, at the time, Penn was wed to Madonna– one of the ’80s’ most significant music icons– and there were a LOT of eyes on the couple. Penn, it appears fair to say, didn’t deal well with all of the attention, and was detained both in 1985 and 1986 for assaulting professional photographers. Then, later on in 1986, he was charged with misdemeanor battery for assaulting a male he thought attempted to kiss Madonna at a club.
James Remar (seen here in 1979’s The Warriors) was arrested for drug possession while filming 1986’s Aliens.
As opposed to the other actors on this list so far, Remar was fired from the film. Cameron changed him with Michael Biehn, who he had actually formerly dealt with on a little film called The Terminator.
Thankfully, Remar overcame his issues with drugs and went on to have a long and successful career, appearing in whatever from Sex and the City to Django Unchained.
Tiffany Haddish was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence while shooting the upcoming Haunted Mansion.
Haddish’s arrest stressed a hard period for the comedian and actor, who– in addition to the death of her 13-year-old pet– had just recently ended her relationship with rapper Typical. She ‘d also simply lost a couple friends: music producer Carl Craig and her coach, comic Bob Saget.
Thankfully, Haddish appeared to be in a better location in April when she guest hosted Ellen. She stated she was “single and ready to socialize” and joked that she was going to turn her mugshot into an NFT.
Charlie Shine was apprehended on a charge of domestic violence while in the middle of filming Season 7 of 2 and a Half Men.
In the wake of the arrest (and a subsequent hospitalization after days of presumably partying with drugs, according to Deadline), Sheen looked into rehabilitation. Production of the extremely popular comedy was placed on hiatus, with executive manufacturer Chuck Lorre, Warner Bros., and CBS releasing a statement saying, in part, “We are exceptionally concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision.”
The program soon began production on another season, however Shine’s habits only grew more irregular, causing multiple hospitalizations, disagreements with adult film stars, and lastly, a pair of rambling interviews where he described Lorre as a “turd,” “clown,” and an anti-semitic term. Also, when talking about dependency, he rejected the concept that he had an illness and said he “cured it with his mind.” The program was again put on hiatus.
When Two and a Half Guy returned for Season 9, Sheen was out (his character exterminated), and Ashton Kutcher had signed up with the cast.
Robert Downey Jr. was apprehended on two separate celebrations while shooting the late ’90s/ early 2000s comedy drama Ally McBeal.
Downey Jr. ended up being the show’s breakout star that season, and even won a Golden World for Best Supporting Star– Series, Miniseries, or Television Movie. He was nominated for an Emmy, too! Regrettably, toward the end of the season, Downey Jr. was jailed for possession of cocaine and valium while at a medical spa in Palm Springs. In spite of Downey Jr. dealing with more time behind bars, the Ally McBeal team didn’t wish to lose the program’s trigger plug, so they signed him to appear in more episodes.
It was another sad twist in the life and profession of an extremely skilled entertainer, but fortunately, it was also the minute Downey Jr. chose to connect for assistance, and to devote to getting it. As he informed Oprah, “I said, ‘You know what? I don’t believe I can continue doing this.’ And I reached out for assistance, and I kept up it. You can connect for help in kind of a half-assed method, and you’ll get it, and you won’t make the most of it. It’s not that challenging to conquer these relatively dreadful issues. … What’s difficult is to decide to do it.”
Drug-free ever since, Downey Jr. has gone on to reach enormous career heights as the star of the Iron Male and Sherlock Holmes franchises. He has a happy home life, too, married considering that 2005 to his other half Susan Downey, with whom he has two children.
And lastly, Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright were detained for interfering with police officers on their final day of shooting 2008’s W.
At around 2 a.m. (folks, if you have actually learned anything from this post, let it be that nothing good occurs after midnight), cops were contacted us to the bar after an altercation (a verbal one, according to Brolin), and the whole team of not-so-sober Hollywood folk were assembled and jailed. Brolin and Wright were charged with disrupting policeman as they attempted to jail their good friends.
It appeared like Brolin and Wright were headed for prison time– or at least some fines and social work– up until a video surfaced of the arrest. Brolin and Wright were revealed drunkenly leaning on each other when an officer unexpectedly pepper sprayed Brolin’s face, and after that, another officer took Wright down and repeatedly tasered him.
