See Celebrities Who Committed Terrible Crimes, See Who Occupies Fourth Position

You may think of celebrities as picture perfect entities but they are actually just like us. They play with their pets, they go on double dates and they even commit crimes such as DUI's and murder.

This article examines five of these celebrities who committed some of the most terrible crimes.

* Mark Wahlberg

Prior to his acting and modelling career, Mark Wahlberg was charged for the attempted murder of two Vietnamese men who he assaulted in two different fights, on the same day.

He left one of the men blind in one eye, but was able to plead the attempted murder down to assault.

He only served 45 days for his two years sentence.

* Jay Z

Jay Z is no stranger to crime. Having been a drug dealer before his fame and fortune, the rapper admitted to being part of the crack cocaine epidemic that devastated the streets of New York in the 1980's.

But that is not all his criminal entails. Before becoming a husband, father and one of the most influential musicians in Hip-Hop, Jay Z stabbed record producer Lance Riviera in the stomach.

He believed Riviera was responsible for the bootlegging of one of his albums. Although he was charged for attempted murder, he ended up pleading to a misdemeanor and he was sentenced to three years probation.

* Matthew Broderick

In 1987, Matthew Broderick and his then girlfriend, Jennifer Grey were vacationing together in Ireland. After renting a BMW, Broderick drove into the wrong lane and crashed head on into a Volvo, killing the mother and daughter in the vehicle.

He was charged for causing death by dangerous driving and couldn't spend up to five years in prison. But instead the charges were dropped to careless driving with a fine of $175.

* Khloe Kardashian

The youngest of the Khardashian trio was arrested in 2007 for a DUI. She broke her probation when she failed to take an alcohol education class and never completed road-side clean up duty that was part of her community service.

She was sentenced to thirty days in jail but only served three hours.

* Oscar Pistorius

Oscar Pistorius seemed to have the world at his fingertips. He was a paralympic champion, had a beautiful girlfriend, and was the first double leg amputee to ever compete in the Olympic games back in 2012.

The athlete was found guilty of murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius shot her through the bathroom door during an argument and was sentenced to five years behind bars.
