2. Axl Rose Don't Mind a Riot

Never the most stable individual, Guns N' Roses screecher Axl Rose definitely has the rap sheet to back up his dangerous reputation. His most infamous arrest came at the height of his fame in 1991, after a gig in St. Louis took an anarchic turn.

Axl was and is a deeply paranoid man, making control very important to him. At the Riverport Amphitheater in Missouri, Rose became incensed when venue security refused to confiscate a man's camera in the front row. Axl took matters into his own hands, leaping into the crowd and dishing out some punishment before slamming the mike down and ending the show.

The crowd went ballistic: This was the biggest tour of the year; maybe the decade. A major riot began that led to 16 arrests, 90 injuries and millions in property damage. Rose was charged with incitement to riot -- nearly a year and another riot later, when the band returned from its overseas tour dates.
