Mark Wahlberg Arrest Records
Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg, born in 1971, is an American Hollywood actor, producer, businessman, rapper, model, singer, and songwriter. His former stage name was "Marky Mark" and he is endearingly called that still. He was born in Dorchester in Boston, Massachusetts, and is the youngest of nine children of Alma (of English descent) and Donald Wahlberg (of Swedish ancestry). In 1982, his parents got a divorce and Wahlberg spent time living with both of them regularly.
Wahlberg's start at being a celebrity was when he was an original member of the boy band, New Kids on the Block, at age 13. His brother, Donnie, was also a band member. His stint with the band was short-lived. After he left the band, the band became very successful with other popular members like Danny Wood and Jordan Knight. Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch was a rap/dance ensemble that Walhberg formed in 1990.
The group released a record, Music for the People with the hit song Good Vibrations, winding up a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100. It became a platinum single later. Later, other hits followed and soon the group became famous in the celebrity music industry. In 1995, he released a single, "No Mercy", supporting his friend Dariusz Michalczewski.
AT&T announced that Wahlberg would become their spokesperson in 2017, reportedly paying him more than $10 million for the contract. His acting debut began in 1993 with the television film, The Substitute.
He starred with Danny DeVito, for the first time on the big screen, in the hit film Renaissance Man. Then followed a string of great movies with big names like Leonardo DiCaprio, in The Basketball Diaries in 1995, and the 1996 hit, Fear. He has since starred in many big films like Boogie Nights, The Perfect Storm, Planet of the Apes, The Truth About Charlie, The Italian Job, The Yards, Invincible and The Departed.
He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor (Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations) for The Departed. His more recent blockbusters are The Happening and Max Payne. He has business interests in family-owned restaurants as well.
Mark Wahlberg, starting off his career as a man who could do it all, seems like a bit of a "Jack of all trades and a master of none". There is no doubt that he is an A-list actor who can do comedy, drama and action roles with ease, but he has always just about been close to getting an award but has not. In an interview, he said, "I have always wanted to do right in life, but the wanting and the doing aren't quite the same things." He has had a youth, full of tumult and his prejudicial attitudes and racial slurs haven't gotten him anywhere positive.
Besides this, instead of making more fans, he tends to demean certain groups such as the gay and lesbian community, making loose comments about sexual preference and orientation. He is seen, as a result, as a bigot. His trysts with drugs haven't served him well, right from the time of his teenage years. He has had pay disputes with producers (as lately as 2018) and has halted filming many a time with his "tantrums".
The Story of the Crime
It is reported that Wahlberg was in trouble with the law some 20 times, from the age of 14. He was addicted to cocaine at this phase in his life, and he crossed the line at age 16 - he attacked two Vietnamese men without provocation. He blinded one of the men. He and his friends fled the scene when police were approaching.
He was arrested and charged with attempted murder, but this was reduced to a criminal contempt charge and he pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to two years in the Deer Island House of Correction in Boston. He served only 45 days. He decided to "turn my (his) life around" after that.
