10 Actors Arrested In The Middle Of Making Movies


Vince Vaughn was arrested and charged with assault while filming 2001 Domestic disturbance.

At 2:30 a.m., Vaughn asked another customer to come out, and a crowd of 40 to 50 people in no condition to operate heavy machinery followed him. Surprisingly, Vaughn and the other guy ended up shaking hands, but then, things took a sudden, violent turn… towards co-star Steve Buscemi.

Another customer, Timothy Fogerty, is reported to have yelled, “Who wants it cut off?” before brandishing a knife at Buscemi. After the Fargo star tried to kick the knife out of his hand, the guy “savaged” Buscemi, slashing his face, neck and hands.

That was probably the closest I’ve ever been, other than getting hit by a bus and a car.”

In the chaos immediately following the knife attack, Vaughn and Rosenberg got into a fight with locals and were arrested by police. Vaughn and Rosenberg were briefly taken to jail and later charged with assault, but the charges were dropped after they agreed never to return to a bar in Wilmington and to receive alcohol counseling.

It was only after I found out that there was such an incredible story. I would like to make a movie about that night: the cheerleaders went wild in Mexico!”

It should be added that star Kirsten Dunst was only 17 at the time and happily stayed away from all the off-set debauchery!
