13 Famous People Who Got Busted for Peeing in Public

Updated November 5, 2019 45.0k views13 items

Most humans have peed outside at one point in their lives. Chalk it up to drunkenness or even a strong connection with our Neanderthal ancestors who almost exclusively peed outside. For full-bladdered five-year-olds, it's almost even a rite of passage to stop at the side of the interstate and pee in the woods during a long car trip.

Unfortunately, common sense and decency states that it is improper and illegal to freely whip out one's peen or vageen in public. Thus, it is quite easy to be arrested and given a pesky public urination citation when you hear the call of the wild on a public sidewalk or elementary school playground. In another case of celebrities being just like us, many famous people have been arrested for public urination.

Although some celebrities have managed to avoid being arrested or fined by publicly peeing without any cops around (ahem Justin Bieber, ahem Kesha), there have been far more sad souls who fell victim to police officers' annoying tendency to enforce public urination laws. Celebrities who behaved badly on planes, the airport, or musical festivals where people could clearly see them didn't get off as easy. Please enjoy this list of celebrities who were caught peeing in public.

    Before the Rolling Stones became famous for much more scandalous activities, they received a slap on the wrist (and a five-pound fine) for peeing on a gas station wall in 1965. The story goes that bassist Bill Wyman "really had to go" on drive home from a London concert, the band pulled into a gas station, and the attendant told them they didn't have a bathroom he could use. They didn't believe him. 

    After a bit of an altercation with the attendant, several members of the band pissed on the gas station wall in solidarity. Bill Wyman, Mick Jagger, and Brian Jones, who were all in their early 20s at the time, were found guilty of the insulting behavior.

    In late 2015, Wiz Khalifa visited the whiz palace... on a public Pittsburgh side street. He was promptly arrested and cited for public urination. That probably didn't stop him, though. He's probably peeing in public somewhere right now.

  • When the Guns N' Roses guitarist couldn't wait in his flight's bathroom line any longer, he decided to enact his own version of sky law and converted the plane's galley into a bathroom. After his arrest, Stradlin's publicist insisted the incident had just been Stradlin's "way of expressing himself."
