Cameron Dallas had a rough end to his 2018. The YouTube star just revealed that he spent the last weekend of the year in a jail cell after allegedly punching a man in the face.
According to Aspen Daily News, Police were called to the Hyatt Hotel in Aspen, CO just after 5 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 29. They reportedly found a man “bleeding from injuries to his face,” and after the unidentified man told them that he had been assaulted by Cameron, the 24-year-old was charged with felony second-degree assault with intent to cause bodily injury. He was taken to the Pitkin County Jail and later released after posting a $5,000 bond. It was later revealed that Cameron had punched the other man in the face and broke his nose, according to The Aspen Times.
Say what?! That totally does not sound like the Chasing Cameron star we all know and love. But Cameron has claimed that it was actually self-defense. “Unfortunately sometimes in life you find yourself in a situation where you have to protect yourself and the people you care about,” he shared on Twitter on Monday, Dec. 31. “Have a safe and happy New Year. 2019 is going to be an amazing one.”

Noah Cyrus was also on the ski trip with him, but it looks like she wasn’t involved. The news is pretty shocking, but the former Vine star isn’t the only celebrity to get arrested over the years. As J-14 readers know, Justin Bieber and Debby Ryan have both been arrested for DUIs (Justin got arrested back in 2014, while Debby faced charges in 2016). Plus, who remembers when Jack Gilinsky was taken into custody for shoplifting? Not to mention the time that David Henrie got arrested for carrying a loaded gun through the TSA security check at the airport. Yeah, stars have definitely had their fair share of run-ins with the police, and it just proves that even Hollywoods finest aren’t above the law!
