7. Phill Lewis – Killed Someone In A Hit And Run
You might recognize him from The Suite Life Of Zach and Cody, but before he was doing that, Lewis was in some serious trouble. In 1991, Lewis was drunk and behind the wheel when he got into a collision with 21-year-old Isabel Duarte.
Lewis was charged with manslaughter with a motor vehicle and driving while intoxicated. He was sentenced to five years in jail. Lewis was able to reduce his sentence to only one year after he worked with the prison-based theater group that participated at jails, schools and churches. Lewis was also given two years probation and ordered to perform 350 hours of community service.
6. Drew Barrymore – Former Drug Addict
Drew Barrymore rose to fame at a young age after starring in the hit film E.T. What can often be the case with child stars is that they battle addiction, and Drew was no exception. By the time she was 9, Drew was already smoking cigarettes. She moved onto alcohol by the age of 11, and by the age of 13 she was also smoking marijuana and snorting cocaine. This led to several stints in rehab, including a suicide attempt. Drew eventually was successful in her court petition for emancipation, and moved into her own apartment. Thankfully, she was able to get her life back on track.
