Leif Garrett is best known as a 70’s teenage idol. However, his legal troubles have stalked him ever since the evening he crashed his vehicle while driving intoxicated and Quaalude. The car crash eventually left his good friend disabled as well as cost Garrett over $7 million as a result of a negligence lawsuit.
Since, Garrett has been arrested many times and been to rehab several times too. His substances of choice related to his jail time seem to be heroin and cocaine. Battling the addiction has been hard on him yet his career has not been penalized due to the addiction. His career has been in full force, but it did decrease somewhat after 2000 as he has gotten older. He was included in the cast of Celebrity Rehab with Jeremy London and Jason Wahler and exposed the show for asking him to use illegal substances so they could tape him. Leif stated that it took little effort or convincing for him to agree to use for the crew.
