15 of 30: Paris Hilton, star of reality show 'The Simple Life' and a Los Angeles heiress, was arrested for drunken driving in September 2006, and in January 2007, she pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of alcohol-related reckless driving.

She was given three years' probation and had her license suspended. In February 2007, she was caught driving. She was sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating probation and spent 22 days behind bars. Prisoners are often released automatically after serving half of their sentences if they exhibit good behavior.
