#40 Terrence Howard
Terrence Howard was arrested in 2001 for a variety of charges including simple assault, terrorist threats, harassment, and stalking, following his violent attack on his first wife, Lori McCommas. Following an argument on the phone, he reportedly forced entry into her home by breaking in doors and chased her into the backyard where he punched her twice in the face with a closed fist. In 2002, he pleaded guilty to disturbing the peace.
In an interview with Rolling Stone three years later, the Oscar-nominated actor admitted to hitting McCommas, saying: “She was talking to me real strong, and I lost my mind and slapped her in front of the kids.”
