It seems like having a DUI is sort of a celebrity rite of passage, all of them seem to have one! King of all DUI arrests, Mel Gibson, was arrested in 2006 for driving nearly twice the speed limit after a night of hard partying. In case he wasn’t in enough trouble, Mel then allegedly began to shout anti-semitic remarks. Most celebrities manage to bounce back quickly after their DUIs, but Mel’s reputation has never recovered.

Nicole Richie may have left her bad girl days long behind her now, but back in 2006 she was arrested for driving the wrong direction down the freeway in Los Angeles. Richie admitted to police that she had taken Vicodin as well as having smoked marijuana. You have to be pretty wasted to drive the wrong way down a freeway, she’s lucky all she got was a DUI, things could have turned out a lot worse for Lionel Richie’s daughter.
