4. Kelly Preston
In 1990, the Jerry Maguire actress was shot in the arm by her fiancé at the time, Charlie Sheen. Or so she led everyone to believe! It turns out that Preston actually shot herself. Kelly went to pick up a pair of Charlie’s pants in the bathroom when a revolver that he had in his pocket fell to the ground and discharged.
Sheen claims the bullet hit the toilet and a piece of either shrapnel or porcelain ricocheted and hit her. He says that he wasn’t even in the room when it happened, he heard the shot from downstairs and looked to the top of stairs to see a naked Kelly Preston covered in blood. Sheen also says that he immediately knew he’d be blamed for it.
The two broke off their engagement shortly after the incident, but Kelly Preston has since come out and admitted that it was not Charlie who shot her. Who knows why it took over 20 years for the truth to finally surface, but Charlie Sheen certainly is the perfect person to pin it on.
3. Brandon Call
The former child star known for playing T.J. Lambert on the CBS sitcom Step by Step was driving home after a day of taping when he noticed a car following him. He tried to lose it, but in doing so he made a wrong turn and winded up in a cul-de-sac. Call went to turn around, but that’s when they chose to open fire.
The 19 year old was shot in both arms, but managed to drive himself to the police station where they dressed his wounds and got him to the hospital. Brandon made a full recovery, though his career never did after Step by Step ended in 1998.
Teenager Tommy Eugene Lewis was eventually convicted of attempted premeditated murder, though the reason for his actions is unknown. Some believe it had something to do with a traffic dispute. Hopefully the rest of you LA drivers remember that.
