Drunk Driving is a criminal offense. It is more dangerous to other commuters than to the ones under the influence. Off-late, drunk driving accidents are on a rise and the public authorities have become tough when they encounter such cases. But, every incriminated drunk driver is forgotten by the public when they see actors getting charged with drunken driving charges. Given how famous they are, their arrests create more than a ripple. To prove that point that nobody is above the law & everyone is vulnerable, we've compiled a list of Telugu actors who were charged with drunken driving.

  1. Navdeep

    Navdeep was in the news for all the wrong reasons. A high-speed chase, misbehaviour & drunk driving were some of the reasons. About the drunk driving incident, at a checkpoint, Navdeep, instead of stopping, sped his vehicle. To stop it, police chased him for quite a while. After stopping him, the police found him drunk. As expected, he was booked for assault, non-cooperation and drunk driving.
