Willis Earl Beal has been reportedly arrested in the Netherlands due to claims he kicked a homeless man in the face after he heckled his performance during a show. The solo star bragged about the incident on stage and continued to call another audience member a 'pr**k' for similarly jeering at the performer.
However this is not the most violent attack a music star has been arrested for to date. Rising recognition can be seen as a huge influence, musicians are given drugs, booze or even trip on power, when they believe they can defy the law. In most of these instances, the star involved is forgiven.
Lookng back into the shady history of musicians and their violent outbursts, look back at shameful behaviour from the likes of Ronnie Wood and Mick Jagger to the infamous Chris Brown and Rihanna brawl. From Cheryl's toilet nightmare to Jim Morrison's indecent exposure on stage...
