79 Celebrities Who Have Been Charged with Domestic Abuse

List Criteria: Famous people who have been charged with domestic abuse

List of celebrities charged with domestic abuse, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Emmy award winners, Oscar winners, and World Series MVPs have all been arrested for domestic violence. Many of the cases are dealing with repeat offenders, but sometimes it was a one-time incident in which the charges of domestic abuse were later dropped.

Who is the most famous person charged with domestic abuse? Charlie Sheen tops our list. The “Two and a Half Men” star plead guilty to domestic abuse charges in 1996 and 2009. Sheen has a history of drug abuse, although the only drug he claims to use these days is a drug called “Charlie Sheen.” He is currently starring in the TV show “Anger Management” and hasn't been in trouble with the law since 2009. Other famous actors who have been charged with domestic abuse include Mel Gibson, Josh Brolin, and Sean Penn.

Some famous ladies have also been charged with domestic abuse. In 1998, Carmen Electra and then-husband Dennis Rodman were involved in a domestic incident in which they were both taken to prison. More recently, Emma Roberts was charged with domestic abuse when she allegedly bloodied the face of her boyfriend, actor Evan Peter. Roberts's father, Eric Roberts, also has a history of domestic violence.
