4. Christian Brando
Christian Brando, the son of Marlon Brando, was arrested after fatally shooting Dag Drollet, the boyfriend of his half-sister. His half-sister was 8 months pregnant with Drollet’s baby at the time. Christian had just met Drollet a few hours before he shot him to death. Cheyenne had told her brother that Drollet had been physically abusive. Later that night, while intoxicated, Christian confronted Drollet in his father’s home. Christian shot Drollet during the confrontation. Christian said that he did not mean to kill Drollet, and that he was only trying to scare him. He told officials that he and Drollet struggled over the gun and it accidently went off. Christian later revealed that he was not sure his sister was telling the truth about the abuse and that she made a chump out of him.
Because Marlon Brando had Cheyenne put in a mental hospital in Tahiti and she was a crucial part of the case, the first degree murder charges were dropped. Cheyenne attempted suicide twice during the trial. Christian accepted a plea deal. A year before Christian was released from prison, Cheyenne committed suicide.
