10 Mind-Blowing Celebrity Scandals You Won't Believe Everyone Forgot

4. Tim Allen - Was A Cocaine Dealer

Affectionately known for his work as Tim 'The Toolman' Taylor, Buzz Lightyear and Jolly Old Saint Nick himself - Tim Allen has firmly cemented himself as a family favourite. It boggles the mind to think of him as a drug dealer but in his youth, that's exactly what he was. In 1978, Allen was caught trafficking 650 grams of cocaine across state lines at the Lightyear-sounding Kalamazoo International Airport. Facing up to lifetime imprisonment, chirpy faced Allen struck a deal with the police to supply the names of his work colleagues and in return received a lighter sentence of 3 to 7 years. He served 28 months. His acting career didn't really take off until ten years later, so no big deal we guess. If it happens before you're famous it doesn't really count. Besides, everyone was doing it back then - right? The real crime would've been... no, who are we kidding, it's pretty bad. SOURCE: omg-facts
