Apparently some stars never learn the very important lesson that fame won’t keep you from being popped for disobeying the law: Matt Dillon, Charles Barkley, and Doug Wilson (of Trading Spaces) have all been arrested recently for bad behavior while driving.


Matt was nabbed going 106 mph in a 65 mph zone in Vermont last night. State troopers pulled the actor over around 10 p.m., and he was  fingerprinted, cited and photographed before being sent on his law-abiding way. No word on whether he was under the influence at the time.


Meanwhile, Charles was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence early this morning in Scottsdale, Ariz. after he ran a stop sign. He was also cited and released, according to reports.


Doug, better known as a designer on the popular TLC show, Trading Spaces, was pulled over and arrested early Tuesday morning after a night on the town in Illinois, according to E! News. He failed to yield to a police vehicle around one in the morning, and was taken into custody and charged with aggravated DUI, driving on a suspended license, failing to yield the right-of-way to an emergency vehicle and unlawful transportation of alcohol. He was booked into the county jail and released a few hours later on $1,000 bond.


Let’s hope these stars live and learn for the new year!
