Every year, there's a new batch of celebrities who get into trouble with the law and a few repeat offenders who land themselves behind bars and in cuffs. From boozin' and cruisin' to bareknuckle fistfights, click through to see which celebs got tangled up with the law in 2012.
Amanda’s 26th year started off with a bang! A few days after her peeps wished her a very HBD, she sideswiped a police car in West Hollywood, Calif., on April 6. Following her June DUI charge stemming from her April arrest, Amanda took to Twitter to ask POTUS for a favor. "I don't drink," she tweeted. "Please fire the cop who arrested me." Luckily for Los Angeles drivers, President Obama never stepped in, but LiLo sure did. After Amanda's car was impounded and she was charged with driving with a suspended license in early September, Lindsay Lohan posted this concerned tweet: "Why did I get put in jail and a Nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?" Well, LiLo, here's a bit of news! By the end of September, Amanda had pled not guilty to two separate hit-and-run counts -- on April 10 and Aug. 4 -- and if convicted she could face up to one year in jail.
