It seems like the musical demigod Jim Morrison was quite famous for his prison escapades too. Within a span of six years, there were ten counts of punishable offences that the lead singer of the band 'The Doors' was arrested for. On the first instance, he was busted for creating a ruckus at a soccer game and humiliating the players, all under the influence of alcohol. As if that wasn't enough, he enjoyed stealing the possessions of police officers such as a helmet and an umbrella. Four years later, just before a public performance at ‘New Haven’, a cop found the rock star getting cozy with a girl in a shower. When asked to "beat it", Morrison retorted by saying "Eat it", which resulted in him getting beaten by the police officer. The concert began late as a result of this and when the singer finally went on stage, he narrated the incident and hurled abuses at the ‘New Haven’ police force. Morrison was immediately arrested for public obscenity and profanity. Another infamous incident surrounding the acclaimed singer was at a party held at the famous Las Vegas’ hotspot named ‘Pussycat a’ Go Go’. Jim was reprimanded for allegedly smoking a cigarette that looked more like a Marijuana joint. What ensued was nothing short of a heated fracas, and the performer was booked for being drunk in public. The following year, Jim was once again arrested for misconduct on a ‘Continental Airlines’ flight, when he was travelling to Phoenix to attend a ‘Rolling Stones’ gig. No wonder, despite being an exceptional singer, Morrison was prohibited from performing in public in 1968.
