Cape Town - 2014 has been a busy one to say the least, and whether positive or negative, celebs have found special ways to get their name in the news.

Highlighting the negative, driving under the influence has been one of the more popular offences and doesn’t seem to be something celebs care about.

The most recent celeb caught was the famous Cake Boss Buddy Valastro, who has admitted to the offence and has paid his dues with a fine, the loss of his licence for 3 months and is attending classes on the hazards of drinking and driving.

We found 5 other celebs that have been involved in DUI charges.
