His one big legal brush came in November 2003 when he was arrested on drunk driving and hit and run charges. Arizona police says he fled the scene after the crash but was arrested at his nearby home.
Police smelled alcohol on his breath and after Campbell was booked at the Maricopa County jail, he kneed one of the cops in the thigh. He was tagged with aggravated assault on a police officer for that. He ended up pleading guilty to extreme DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. He got ten nights in the slammer.
