It has been a tough year for Scout Willis, the middle daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. The 20-year-old was arrested for underage drinking after she was caught with an open container in New York's Union Square. The aspiring musician was charged with violating the open container law as well as criminal impersonation for presenting a false ID. The news comes just a couple of months after Scout's Twitter account referenced her potential drug use. Scout joins sister Tallulah Belle in Bruce and Demi's doghouse after this incident. The couple's youngest daughter was busted for underage drinking in 2011. While these charges might be considered minor, they make us think of other celebrity children that ended up in trouble with the law. Here are some famous offspring that faced legal battles at one point or another.
Before Michael Douglas settled down with Catherine Zeta-Jones, he had a son from a previous marriage. As it turns out, the oldest son of the Oscar winner has faced his share of legal issues. As far back as 1999, Cameron was facing charges related to drugs. Things came to a head in 2010 when he was sentenced to five years in prison for drug trafficking. Shockingly, things have only gotten worse since then. In 2011, he received an additional sentence for holding drugs in prison.
The estranged daughter of actor Billy Bob Thornton found herself in serious trouble after she was charged with the murder of her friend's 1-year-old daughter. She claimed that the child's injuries were related to a fall from her playpen. Brumfield dodged the murder charge but did get convicted of manslaughter in 2011, leading to a 20 year prison sentence.
The son of wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan gained fame from his family's reality show "Hogan Knows Best." Unfortunately, that fame led to some trouble for the little Hulkster. In 2008, Nick ended up serving nearly six months in jail as a result of a 2007 street racing accident that left his friend severely injured. He faced several charges for his role in the incident, including the reckless driving felony that landed him behind bars. Nick has managed to behave since leaving the slammer and was granted early release from his probation this past May.Note: This was written by a Yahoo! contributor. Join the Yahoo!
