We have all heard of and seen celebrities getting special treatment because of their status in Hollywood, but what we are seeing more of now are celebrities getting arrested (like they should) for drinking and driving. Celebrities think that they can get away with a lot more than the general public because that is what the past has proven, however by celebrities getting arrested, even if it is for a short amount of time, it is proving that if they drink and drive, they’ll have consequences just like everyone else.

The most recent celebrity that was caught drinking and driving was Chad Kroeger from Nickelback. He was .6% over the legal limit and was set a date to come into court but decided to skip it. Now he will be faced a sentence and most likely have to spend some time in jail.

Here’s a list of celebrities that also though that it was alright to drive while under the influence:

1. Paris Hilton
2. Nicole Richie
3. Barron Hilton
4. Mischa Barton
5. Mel Gibson

At least the police are not letting them pass because of the fact that they are celebrities and that an incident like this might scar their reputation. The only problem is that their punishment is so minimal.

If celebrities commit any crime then they receive the exact same punishments as any other citizen. Their name should not be a factor into how many days they do in jail, how much money they are willing to dish out for bail, and how much hassle the courts will get during the trial. Celebrities are human beings and human being make mistakes, but some mistakes have consequences, and this consequences should not be amended because of your social status.
