David Carradine - By his own account, in the late 1950s, while living in San Francisco, young Carradine was arrested for assaulting a police officer; he pleaded to a lesser charge of disturbing the peace. While in the Army (196062) he faced court-martial, on more than one occasion, for shoplifting. After he became an established actor and had changed his name to David, he was arrested, in 1967, for possession of marijuana. At the height of his popularity in Kung Fu, in 1974, Carradine was arrested again, this time for attempted burglary and malicious mischief. While under the influence of peyote, Carradine, nude, began wandering around his Laurel Canyon neighborhood. He broke into a neighbor's home, breaking a window and cutting his arm. He then bled all over the homeowner's piano. At some time during this episode he accosted two young women, allegedly assaulting one while asking, or demanding of her, if she was a witch. The police literally followed a trail of blood to his home. The burglary charges were dropped, as nothing was found to be missing, while Carradine pleaded "no contest" to the mischief charge and was given probation. He was never charged with assault, but the young woman sued him for $1.1 million and was awarded $20,000. During the 1980s, Carradine was arrested at least twice for driving under the influence of alcohol, once in 1984 and again in 1989. In the second case, Carradine pleaded "no contest".
