14 Celebs Who Have Been House Arrested


This rapper was arrested for the fourth time in 2006. For the purchase and possession of firearms, T.I. was placed under house arrest. T.I.'s Road to Redemption, an MTV series, followed his six months in prison, three months in a halfway house, month of house arrest, and community service hours. In 2010, the rapper was arrested for the second time for drug possession.

Lindsay Lohan

This actress fell on hard things after her meteoric rise to prominence as a child star. Lindsay Lohan was placed under house arrest in 2011 after confessing to stealing jewels. She had been in and out of court for two DUIs in 2007, and this house arrest came years later.

Michael Vick

When he was caught running a dog-fighting ring out of his home, this former Atlanta Falcons quarterback was subjected to intense scrutiny and punishment. Because there was no room at the halfway house for Michael Vick, he was placed under house arrest.

Teresa Giudice

For fraud, this Real Housewives of New Jersey actress was sentenced to over a year in prison. Teresa Giudice was sentenced to a month and a half of home arrest at the end of her term. Joe, her husband, began serving his term in March 2016 for the same fraud offense.

Robert Downey Jr

After a series of legal issues in the late 1990s, this Iron Man actor made a significant change in his life. Robert Downey Jr. was on house arrest in 2001 when he was arrested for driving under the influence. The actor eventually came to live a healthy lifestyle after returning to rehab and serving three years on probation.

Martha Stewart

Martha Stewart may have been sentenced to ten months in prison for insider trading, but she was actually placed on house arrest for the first five months of her sentence—and most likely stayed quite comfortable on her 153-acre estate in upstate New York.

Lauren Hill

Paying for her crime had to wait till she made more money for this singer. After being imprisoned for tax evasion in 2013, a judge permitted Lauryn Hill to postpone her house arrest so she could go on tour.

Paris Hilton

In 2007, socialite Paris Hilton was placed under house arrest for a drunk driving case after only four nights in jail. When she was locked up in her Beverly Hills estate, Hilton was bombarded with gifts from devoted fans, much to the dismay of many.

Meek Mill

This rapper is best known for his rivalry with Drake and his connection with Nicki Minaj, but he has also earned a poor reputation in the legal world. Meek Mill was sentenced to 90 days in prison for breaking his parole in a 2009 case involving drug and firearms possession.

Bobby Brown

Bobby Brown was sentenced to home arrest and 14 days in county jail in 2003 after breaking his probation for a drunk driving conviction. Nearly ten years later, the singer was arrested for a DUI for the second time.

Roman Polanski

This Oscar-winning director is well-known for the offenses for which he was charged (he admitted to one charge of unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl in 1977, when he was 44). After evading more allegations roughly 30 years before, Roman Polanski was imprisoned under house arrest in Zürich in 2009. Though he was declared free by the Swiss authorities in 2010, his reputation endures.

Lil Kim

This rapper was sentenced to a year in jail in Philadelphia for perjury in connection with a 2005 shooting. Lil Kim was placed on house arrest for a month after being freed from prison two months early due to good behavior. She started a prisoner outreach program through her organization after her time in prison.

Vince Neil

This Mötley Crüe member paid the price for driving while inebriated. He was embroiled in another drunk driving case after pleading guilty to manslaughter in the aftermath of an incident in 1984. In 2011, Vince Neil was sentenced to two weeks house arrest and two weeks in jail in Las Vegas for a misdemeanor.

Andy Dick

After getting in jail for drug possession, leave it to this comic to turn his arrest into a significant career move. Andy Dick's home imprisonment was made into a celebrity talk show, House Arrest With Andy Dick, in 2009, which lasted five episodes.
