Celeb Surgeon Caught After 4 Days on the Run

Dr. Bumbum, a famous Brazilian plastic surgeon with several hundred thousand social media followers, has been caught after being on the run from authorities for four days. Last month, he and his mother, who practices with him, were arrested after one of their patients, Lilian Calixto, fell fatally ill after a buttock enhancement surgery they performed in his Rio de Janeiro apartment.

Dr. Bumbum and his mum dropped the ill Calixto at the hospital without identifying themselves, where she subsequently died. Dr. Bumbum's real name is Denis Furtado. Now he, and his mother, Maria de Fatima Barros, face murder charges.

T.I. Arrested Trying to Enter His Own Gated Community

Don't you hate it when you lose your keys and the security guard won't let you into your own gated community? Ok, most of us probably don't get to deal with the security guard part, but regardless, when it's 4:30 in the morning, all you want to do is go to bed after a night out. Instead of his cozy bed, rapper T.I. had to settle for a jail cell after he was arrested while attempting to enter his own gated community. His attorney is calling it a wrongful arrest.

American rapper and producer G-Eazy (nee Gerald Earl Gillum) was arrested this week in Stockholm, Sweden on drug possession and assault charges after a scuffle in a nightclub. According to TMZ, the artist was partying at Solidaritet after a show, then became belligerent when a fan attempted to photograph him in the VIP area of the club.

Details are few, but it appears G-Eazy won't be facing any jail time following his arrest.

It feels like a long way from 'That's So Raven' stardom to arrested by a bounty hunter named Lucky while hiding in your underwear in a Las Vegas closet, but it apparently only takes 11 years and a few arrests.

Orlando Brown, ex-costar of the hit Disney series and a slew of other television shows and movies as a child actor, was nabbed for skipping a court appearance on domestic battery charges. And video of the arrest is pretty extreme.

T.J. Miller's last 12 months have been far from great. In May of last year, HBO announced Miller would not be reprising his role as Erlich Bachman on the hit series "Silicon Valley" for its fifth season. In June, Miller gave a rambling interview to the Hollywood Reporter during which he trashed former colleagues. Six months after that, Miller was arrested for attacking an Uber driver, and less than a week later he was accused of punching a woman and sexual assault while in college.

And then this week Miller was arrested for calling in a fake bomb threat on a train, and is now facing federal charges.

While everyone knows the Tin Man from the 'Wizard of Oz' needed a heart, many will be surprised to learn that the Tin Man from Upstate New York needs a drunk driving lawyer. Unfortunately, information regarding the Tin Man's recent arrest is scant, so the upstate Tin Man may have already had a lawyer all along.

The actor that plays the iconic Tin Man character at the Yellow Brick Road Casino, in Chittenango, New York, Nicholas Sherman, 31, was arrested for DWI while still in full make-up. Fortunately, for those of us on the internet, we get to delight in his full makeup mugshot, and hopefully take away a couple valuable legal lessons.

Last week, an arrest was finally made in the 2015 shooting of Darrell Alston, better known to his fans as "Nazty." Police cited the on-going beef between Nazty and Kevron Evans, aka Young Moose, as the motivation for the shooting. However, Young Moose has not been implicated in any other way.

Police arrested Antonio Melvin for the murder of Alston, who is a friend of Young Moose and has appeared in the rapper's music videos. Police have linked the murder of Alston to the feud between the rappers due to so-called"diss tracks" that each released attacking the other with biting lyrics.

Chris Soules, reality TV star from the 19th season of the Bachelor, 10th season of the Bachelorette, Dancing with the Stars, and Worst Cooks in America, has been arrested as a result of a fatal car accident between himself and a 66-year-old farmer, husband, and grandfather, on a tractor in the state of Iowa.

Early reports stated that Soules left the scene of the accident without contacting authorities. However, it was later discovered that he contacted 9-1-1 and even attempted to revive the other driver. However, reports confirm that he did leave the scene of the accident in the vehicle of another person, leaving behind his vehicle.

Former workout guru to the stars and star herself of Bravo's fitness reality shows Work Out and Thintervention, Jackie Warner has talked candidly about her problems with drinking before. "I looked in the mirror one morning and realized that I did not like the person that I had become," she told Bravo last year. "I could no longer hide the fact that MY decisions were causing me unhappiness."

It doesn't look like she'll be any happier following her arrest last weekend, as Warner is now facing assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer charges.

Thursday morning, actor and artist Shia Labeouf was arrested outside his art installation at the Museum of Moving Image in New York City after he barely assaulted an apparent Hitler supporter. This incident coincides with the vehement social media debate currently underway regarding whether it is okay to assault Nazis.

Shia was standing near his interactive exhibit, when the Hitler supporter called him over seemingly to take a selfie. When Shia went over to him, the Hitler support says to Shia: "Hitler did nothing wrong." At that point, Shia can be seen pushing the man away. The man called police, alleging that Shia pulled his scarf and scratched his face, though the video shows Shia trying to push himself away from the Hitler supporter.
