Chad Muska, Los Angeles
Punishment: Released on $20,000 bail.
On July 13, 2011, pro-skater Chad Muska tweeted: "I have a feeling tonight is going to be another one of those nights. I should just stay in... But I won't." Hours later, he was apprehended outside the Roosevelt Hotel for writing MUSKA and MUSKA KILLS on two buildings in the vicinity.
Camera phone footage of the incident surfaced, showing two black security guards holding Muska captive while he dropped a couple of casual N-bombs. He was taken into custody and released on $20,000 bail.
By then the story had broken and Muska's graffiti had paled in comparison to his racially charged language. In the midst of the media attention, Muska took to his Twitter to defend himself ("I'm not racist! I'm ghetto!"), but just over a day later, he posted an apology to YouTube. No information has been released whether he'll be charged for the graffiti.
