The arrest of Rob Lowe:
He's a star in movies and TV, but a videotaped recording made in his free time stained his reputation.
Robert Hepler Lowe was born in Virginia, the son of a trial lawyer father and a school teacher mother. His parents divorced when Rob and his brother were very young and Rob was moved and educated in Malibu, California.
He attended the same high school as fellow actors Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen, Robert Downey Junior, and Sean Penn.
Lowe's breakthrough role came in 1983's "The Outsiders" as Sodapop Curtis.
And other successes followed in "St. Elmo's Fire", "Tommy Boy", and two "Austin Powers" movies.
He also was a hit as Sam Seaborn in "The West Wing" TV series.
Things were fine, until 1998 when Lowe was caught up in a sex scandal, when he was videotaped having sex with two women. One was 22. The other was 16, although Lowe denied knowing her true age. He performed twenty hours of community service to avoid criminal charges.
Lowe was also shown on the same tape in a threesome with a young American model in Paris.
Lowe's career survived the scandal and he eventually made jokes about the whole thing as a host on Saturday Night Live.
