Justin Bieber was arrested Thursday morning in Miami, putting him on a long list of child stars who have taken wrong turns.

Miami Beach Police brought in the 19-year-old for DUI and drag racing after Bieber failed a sobriety test. This incident follows Bieber’s other recent legal troubles. Earlier in January, the singer’s house was raided by Los Angeles police looking for evidence linking him to a vandalism case.

Like Bieber, other celebrities have made headlines for the wrong reasons. Here are some of those former child stars and where they are today.

Amanda Bynes

Made famous at age 10 by Nickelodeon’s All That, 27-year-old Bynes rapidly returned to the public’s attention in 2013 for a series of bizarre incidents that included sharing racy photos on social media, ranting on Twitter and throwing a bong out of a window. The star was eventually sent to inpatient treatment, which she has completed.

After 2004’s Mean Girls, stardom seemed certain for Lohan. Instead, the actress has collected six mug shots and served jail time for a variety of drug and driving charges over the past seven years, starting in 2007 for a DUI. The 27-year-old has become known for her flaky movie set behavior, but continues to work, giving fans hope for a full career comeback.

Garrett released his hit single “I Was Made For Dancin'” at age 16. Three days before the actor-singer’s 18th birthday, Garrett had his first of numerous legal troubles. Garrett crashed his car while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The accident left the car’s other passenger paraplegic. Garrett, 52, has since been arrested on drug charges an additional three times.

Britney Spears

Spears’s path away from the pop princess of “…Baby One More Time” started in 2004 with her surprise marriage to family friend Jason Alexander, which was annulled 55 hours later. In 2007 Spears began to act erratically, shaving her head and attacking paparazzi. Spears refused to relinquish custody of her children to Kevin Federline. Police eventually stepped in and had Spears hospitalized based on her condition. Since this low point, Spears, now 32, has made an astounding comeback, releasing three albums, appearing on X Factor and starting her residency show Britney: Piece of Me in Vegas.

The Coreys ascended the fame ladder together, starting as child stars and turning into swoon-worthy teen idols with help from films like Stand By Me. Early access to the spoils of Hollywood led to public drug battles for both Feldman and Haim. Feldman, 42, is now sober and continues to work in film and television, and recently released a book. Sadly, Haim s battle with drug addiction continued until the actor s pneumonia-related death in 2010. He died at the age of 38.

Drew Barrymore

Barrymore appeared innocent in E.T. but the newfound fame from the part walked the child star into a rebellious era. The actress became a Studio 54 regular before she turned 10 and started doing cocaine at 13. At 14, Barrymore attended rehab twice, and further raised eyebrows for her 1995 Playboy spread at 19. Shortly after this, Barrymore began to appear in films again, eventually launching her own production company. The 38-year-old is now married and expecting her second child.
