These lesser-known celebrity criminals are inextricably associated with reputations either so snobbishly posh or glowing with wholesome modesty, you’ll have a hard time believing they ever broke bad, even in their younger years.

10. Keanu Reeves – Drunk Driving
First on our list of stars in stripes is Keanu Reeves. He became a household name at the turn of the nineties for portraying the legendary bonehead “Ted” in the popular Bill and Ted films, but ironically ended up living up to the role when he was pulled over for drunk driving in 1993. He was arrested and hauled in immediately, but avoided a harsh sentence due to his instantaneous confession. He could have landed himself some serious prison time if he hadn’t owned up, so it’s probably a good thing he didn’t pull a “Conspiracy Keanu.”
