You'd think that celebrities would try to be on their best behavior at all times, seeing as how they're constantly in the public eye. But as Lindsay Lohan recently proved, fame and fortune will never stand in the way of a good ol' fashioned brawl.
Early on Thursday morning, the "Liz & Dick" actress was arrested and charged with third-degree assault following a scuffle at a New York lounge. MTV reports that Lohan allegedly struck a woman after the two briefly exchanged insults, though Lohan's attorney Mark Heller maintains that his client was "certainly not intoxicated," and "certainly not under the influence of drugs."

But Lindsay isn't the first star to allegedly let her temper get the best of her. As it turns out, some celebs just like to settle arguments with their fists:
Olivier Martinez vs. Gabriel Aubry
Halle Berry found herself at the center of controversy on Thanksgiving of 2012, when ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry and her current fiance Olivier Martinez exchanged blows in her driveway. The Los Angeles Times reported that Aubry stopped by Berry's house to drop off their daughter, Nahla, when the two men began fighting. Both Aubry and Martinez were admitted to the hospital for their injuries.
Chris Brown vs. Drake's Entourange
In June of 2012, Chris Brown and Drake were both partying in the same VIP section of a New York nightclub. Details get fuzzy from this point on, but according to TMZ, both of their entourages started trash-talking each other and a shoving match ensued. Drake, however, said that he wasn't involved in the melee, as he was already leaving the club when the fight broke out. TMZ also reported that Drake's friend, rapper Meek Mill, initiated the altercation when he threw a bottle that resulted in a gash on Chris Brown's chin.
Axl Rose vs. Tommy Hilfiger
Axl Rose and Tommy Hilfiger were both attending actress Rosario Dawson's birthday party at NYC's The Plumm in May of 2006. The Guns N' Roses frontman reportedly moved a drink belonging to Hilfiger's then-girlfriend and the fashion designer erupted. "He just kept smacking me," Rose said. "It was the most surreal thing, I think, that's ever happened to me in my life." Rose claims he was moving the woman's cocktail to prevent it from spilling, but Hilfiger maintains he was taking a proactive approach to what he thought would turn into a fistfight.
Russell Crowe vs. His Own Bodyguard
While shooting "The Cinderella Man" in Toronto in 2004, actor Russell Crowe and his own bodyguard began fighting at a cocktail party for the film's cast and crew. It started when Mark "Spud" Carroll, a former rugby player turned security guard, approached Crowe while he was chatting with his female castmate and made a comment about the nature of their conversation. "I thought he was accusing me specifically of something and I took offense to it," Crowe later said, claiming the whole thing was a misunderstanding. "[We] called each other a few ripe names, had a hug and got on with the job."
Shia LaBeouf vs. Canadian Bar Patron
In the fall of 2011, "Transformers" star Shia LaBeouf was drinking in a Vancouver bar when he allegedly began fighting with another patron. Security separated the men and threw them out, but as Radar Online reported, the brawl didn't end there. The patron, only identified as Mike, allegedly ripped off his shirt and began attacking LaBeouf as he waited for a taxi. "He took a few punches to the face," said one witness. Bystanders eventually broke the two men apart.
Jon Lovitz vs. Andy Dick
When comedians Jon Lovitz and Andy Dick ran into each other at the Laugh Factory in July of 2007, their encounter was anything but fun. According to the New York Post, Lovitz was demanding an apology for a remark Dick made a year earlier about the death of their friend, Phil Hartman, when things took a turn for the worse. "Jon picked Andy up by the head and smashed him into the bar four or five times, and blood started pouring out of his nose," said Jamie Masada, the club's owner. As Lovitz later stated of his fight with Dick, "All the comedians are glad I did it because this guy is a [expletive deleted]."
Young Jeezy vs. Rick Ross
Backstage at the 2012 BET Awards, tensions were running high between rappers Young Jeezy and Rick Ross. Security guards stepped in pretty quickly when the friends of both men started to scrap, but TMZ reported that Ross, who was shirtless at the time of the altercation, was escorted away from the ruckus while still hollering at the opposing entourage.
The Cast of 'Jersey Shore' vs. the Cast of 'Jersey Shore'
During the run of MTV's "Jersey Shore," J-Woww punched the Situation, Snooki fought Angelina, and Ronnie and Sammi held nightly screaming matches. And when the castmates weren't fighting each other, they were punching their way through Seaside Heights. Us Weekly reports that Pauly D, Ronnie and the Situation (along with J-Woww's boyfriend, Roger) were also involved in a "massive" bar brawl with locals during the taping of the upcoming season.
Ryan Gosling vs. Violence in General
Ryan Gosling will involve himself in a brawl every once in a while, but only to break it up. As reported by Us Weekly, the star of "The Notebook" came upon two people — a street vendor and an alleged theif — fighting in the middle of an intersection in lower Manhattan. Gosling clamly walked the men to a corner, listen to their stories, and then payed the vendor for the theif's stolen merchandise.
