iVillage: Child Stars Gone Bad (and Occasionally Good Again)

Leif Garrett

The “I Was Made for Dancing” singer’s career has been plagued by trouble with drugs and the law. Three days before his 18th birthday, Garrett crashed his car while under the influence, leaving his passenger, Roland Winkler, a paraplegic. The friends remained estranged until 1999, when Winkler appeared on an episode of VH1's "Behind the Music" dedicated to the former pop star. “I got past the accident through time, which heals everything,” Garrett said in 2005. “Meeting with Roland was quite healing.” But Garrett's legal troubles have persisted. Since then, he's been arrested multiple times for trying to buy drugs or having them in his possession, most recently in February 2010.
