Emmy Award winners, Oscar winners, and World Series MVPs have all been arrested for domestic violence. Some cases involve repeat offenders, while others were one-time incidents in which the charges of domestic abuse were later dropped.

Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen pleaded guilty to domestic abuse charges in 1996 and 2009. Other famous actors who have been charged with domestic abuse include Mel Gibson, Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Steven Seagal, James Brown, and Sean Penn.

Some famous women 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. Emma Roberts was charged with domestic abuse and assault when she allegedly bloodied the face of her boyfriend, actor Evan Peters. Roberts's father, Eric Roberts, also has a history of domestic violence.
