MOST SHOCKING CELEBRITY ARRESTS & THEIR BAIL AMOUNTS

Young Jeezy, August of 2014/illegal assault rifle

Bail amount of $1 million

As part of the investigation into the shooting death of a man at a Wiz Khalifa concert, a search warrant was issued for Young Jeezy’s tour bus as Khalifa and Jeezy were touring together. During the search, police found firearms that belonged to the members of Jeezy’s entourage, as well as Jeezy’s illegal assault rifle.

As a result, Young Jeezy and five men from his entourage were arrested on illegal gun charges. Jeezy and all five members of his entourage pleaded not guilty to the charges. After posting the $1 million bail, all six men were released from jail.

Even famous, easily recognizable people that are a minimal flight risk have to post bail. Even Jeezy’s prior legal issues that include an arrest in January that stemmed from an argument with his son in 2012 and a DUI arrest in 2008 do not justify his severe bail amount.

 

Todd English, Celebrity Chef, Arrested in August of 2014 for DWI

Bail amount of $1,500

Celebrity Chef Todd English is the creative force behind numerous restaurants throughout the nation, he frequently appears on the television series “Iron Chef USA” and authored several cookbooks. The 54-year-old chef was driving along county road 39 in Long Island at approximately 3:30 a.m. when he was pulled over by the Southampton Town Police. The police arrested English, who was charged with a DWI, which is a misdemeanor. English posted his $1,500 cash bail and was released.

 

Lamar Odom 2013 DUI (crack)

Bail amount of $15,000

On August 30, the California Highway Patrol in San Fernando Valley arrested Lamar Odom for driving under the influence. Odom was pulled over for driving too slow on Freeway 101. He was reportedly driving 50 mph. He failed several sobriety field tests and would not agree to chemical testing. In the state of California, this refusal translates into a yearlong suspended driver’s license.

They took Odom to a nearby station, booked him and set his bail at $15,000. He was then transferred to a jail in Van Nuys. Odom called on his drug dealer to post his bail. The bail was posted and Odom was released from the Van Nuys jail facility.

As this news story unfolded, reports indicate that Odom never even called on his wife or her family members post his bail. Kardashian found out about her husband’s arrest the way the rest of us did, through the media.

 

Chris Brown 2009/assault on girlfriend Rihanna

Bail amount of $50,000

Chris Brown, R&B singer and dancer, was arrested and then charged with making criminal threats (which is a felony charge). This comes after an early morning attack on his pop star girlfriend, Rihanna. She was hospitalized following the incident due to severe bruising on her face.

Eventually, Brown posted the $50,000 bail and was released. Allegedly, Brown and Rihanna were sitting in a vehicle in the Hancock Park neighborhood when an argument ensued. The argument began escalating after the two exited the vehicle. A 9-1-1 call reported the disturbance and when the police arrived, Rihanna was present but Brown had fled the scene.

The incident with Rihanna led to Brown receiving a sentence of 5-years’ probation. He was also ordered to enter a residential drug treatment facility and given a restraining order stating that he was not to be within 50 feet of Rihanna. In 2013, Brown violated his 2009 probation when he was arrested in Washington D.C. This incident resulted in his previously ordered probation being revoked.

Brown was charged with a misdemeanor and no bail amount was set. In February 2014, Brown was ordered to remain in jail for at least a month because of his 2013 probation violation.

 

Phil Spector 2003/murder

Bail amount of $1 million

In 2003, a 9-1-1 call led police to the Los Angeles mansion of 62-year-old Record Producer Phil Spector. The body of actress Lana Clarkson was found slouched over in a chair. Clarkson had been shot through the mouth with a revolver.

Spector was on the scene. A struggle occurred between him and the police when he was asked to show them his hands. Spector was eventually subdued with a Taser.

Following a six-month investigation, Spector was charged with the murder of Lana Clarkson. Renowned defense attorney Robert Shapiro arranged for Spector’s bail, which was set at $1 million. He posted bail and remained a free man for six years before his conviction in 2009. Spector was convicted of second-degree murder and illegally discharging a firearm. Spector was sentenced to 19 years to life for the murder of the actress.

 

Double-Amputee Olympian Oscar Pistorius, aka Blade Runner, 2013/murder

Bail amount of $1 million

Oscar Pistorius admitted to accidently killing his girlfriend, 29-year-old Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day. Pistorius claims that he shot Steenkamp because he thought she was an intruder. Desmond Nair, Chief Magistrate, ruled Pistorius be given the harshest bail requirements allowed in South African law. This means that his defense attorneys must detail exceptional reasons as to why Pistorius needs to be free prior to his trial; this is on top of giving up his two South African passports, surrendering his guns, posting an $11,300 cash bond and proving that he has another $988,700 available to pay his entire bail amount if necessary.

 

Haley Joel Osment 2006/ DUI - Marijuana possession

Bail amount of $15,000

Haley Joel Osment, 18-years-old,  has been charged with several misdemeanors including a DUI, possession of marijuana, driving with a .08 blood alcohol level (or higher), an enhancement of driving with a .15 or higher and a vehicle infraction of driving while under the age of 21 years with a blood alcohol level of 0.5 or higher.

While driving home in the early hours of July 20, Osment lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a brick pillar. The collision occurred around 1 a.m. Osment was treated for a shoulder injury and a broken rib. No other bystanders were injured.

Osment faces up to six months incarceration on charges he was driving while intoxicated and had marijuana in his possession. His blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit at .16 percent. Osment’s bail was set at $15,000. He was released from custody after posting his $15,000 bond.

 

Aaron Hernandez, former NFL player,  2012 murder of two men in Boston

Bail was denied

Former New England Patriot tight end, Aaron Hernandez, was indicted by a grand jury for the July 2012 murder of Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu. The two men were in Boston, sitting at a traffic light when the driver of another vehicle began to shoot at them.

Boston police believe that Hernandez may be the shooter. Hernandez was being held without bail for an unrelated 2013 death of semi-pro player Odin Lloyd, which Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to. Hernandez’ Defense Attorney Michael Fee states that all the evidence against his client, in relation to the Lloyd murder, was circumstantial. Fee requested that his client be granted bail; however, no bail amount was set.

Thank you so very much to the owner Larry and his incredible compassionate employee Mike if it were not for these two men spending countless hours on the phone allowing us to share our story, our experience, our hopes and prayers we would have not been able to execute a bail bond and release for our brother and father.Words cannot express our gratitude but we are so thankful for the day that you picked up the phone, and allowed us to vent took into consideration the story and evidence and in the most humanitarian way treated our brother as if he were YOUR OWN👍😁.TO ANYONE WHO FINDS HIM OR HERSELF IN A SITUATION OF NEED LIKE WE DID!!

Sorry, not my real last name but my review is. I talked with the owner Mike and I cannot say enough good words about him so "awesome" will have to do. And the Bail Agent Mike was also. Both gentlemen were very quick, knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and extremely helpful. They both made my dealing with this situation so much easier. I highly recommend Bad Boys Bail Bonds if you find yourself, family or friends in need if bail.

I highly recommend Bad Boys Bail Bonds. This is the first time my family and I have ever had to use such a service, and we’re glad that our first time experience was a pleasant one! They work quickly and effectively! I worked with my Mike and he did a great job simplifying the process and making sure I was aware of my situation and the things I needed to take care of.He also clarified what to do if certain scenarios were to come to fruition, and that we can just call them! I hope I never have to use such a service again, but if it does, I will definitely contact them.Words of a Free Man.

This company has been nothing but kind and professional with me. I spent over an hour talking with the owner after getting me out of jail ASAP. I can tell you it is more than the bail money they want but a very very very strong desire to help people that drives this company. I strongly recommend them if you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of needing a bond. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would gladly give 100’s. You can not go wrong with them!!!! I don’t rate companies online but after the service provided to me they whole hearted deserved my comments. AAA+ company!!!!

I can’t thank Larry and Kendall enough for all they did. Very fast and professional. Larry talked me into waiting two days for my son to go to court and the bail was reduced significantly, saving me a lot of money. He could have taken my money initially as I was ready to pay, but after talking me through the process he helped me to see it wasn’t just about money to him, it was about helping others. Kendall came to my house, I don’t drive at night, he was fast professional and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Bad Boys if you want to be treated fairly and know the process.
