James Brown: Mr. Dynamite

After an argument with his wife Adrienne one day, James Brown threw all of her fur coats on the lawn -- and blasted them with a shotgun.

(Adrienne later set fire to all of Brown's clothes.)

[While attending an insurance seminar in Georgia in 1988, Brown pulled out his shotgun and threatened several people who he accused of using the bathroom in his trailer. He then hopped in his truck and led police on a wild chase through two states. He was caught and served two years in the pen. By the turn of the century, he had logged nearly ten arrests. "The next time he screams, 'Can I get a witness?'" Stuff magazine once quipped, "it's a good bet that he'll be under oath."]
