He won the Golden Globe and was nominated for the Academy Awards. You've been able to see him in Iron Man, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Natural Born Killers, just to mention a few. Those of you who have seen him act knows that he's a good actor. Unfortunately he's also well known by the police. The first arrest came in 1996 when he was arrested for driving drunk and possessing of cocaine, heroin, crack and a Magnum revolver. He was sentenced to thee years probation, but the year after he violated parole and was sentenced 6 months in prison. In 2000 he was at it again, arrested for possessing of cocaine, and in 2001 he was arrested again for being under infuence of drugs. This time he wasn't charged though. After that, he has been staying on the right side of the law, at least as far as we know, and let's hope he keeps it that way.
