Terrence Howard

Charges: Academy award nominee actor Terrence Howard was arrested by Pennsylvania cops in September 2001 for assaulting his estranged wife.

According to a Whitemarsh Police Department report, after Howard and Lori McCommas argued on the phone, the actor warned, “Don’t disrespect me by hanging up on me or I’ll come over and hurt you.” McCommas then hung up and contacted 911 fearing Howard was serious. Howard went to her house, kicked in the front door, and punched the mother of his three children twice in the face.

Date: Mugshot taken on September 17, 2001

Verdict: After being charged with a variety of crimes (simple assault, terroristic threats, harassment, and stalking), Howard subsequently pleaded guilty in 2002 to disorderly conduct.
