What did they do?

Since his peak, Nolte’s career has taken a nosedive, thanks in large part to persistent problems with drugs and alcohol. In 2002 he was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and GHB, for which he was eventually given three years’ probation and an order to undergo counselling. It also led to Nolte giving us the greatest celebrity mugshot of all time.
