Marcus T. Paulk Pleads Guilty, Maia Campbell Arrested

'90s TV stars stir up trouble with the law.

Published February 11, 2015

Not a good week for young TV stars of the '90s. Marcus T. Paulk of Moesha and Maia Campbell of In the House both had run-ins with the law. Campbell, who starred opposite LL Cool J on the sitcom, was arrested at a restaurant for the second time this year. Campbell was cuffed at a Riverside, Georgia Waffle House, TMZ reports, for drunken disorderliness. 

The 38-year-old was arrested last month on similar charges after she caused a scene at a Burger King, accusing a child of stealing her wallet and calling the arresting officer a "f***ing f*****."

CHILD STARS ALL GROWN UP

Meanwhile,
Paulk managed to avoid jail time after pleading guilty to driving under the influence following his arrest on Super Bowl Sunday. The former Moesha star's vehicle was pulled over by police in Scottsdale, Arizona after they reportedly spotted him driving erratically. He failed a field sobriety test and allegedly confessed to drinking at a pre-Super Bowl bash and smoking marijuana earlier in the day, according to TMZ


Paulk was also booked for drug possession after cops found a bag of pot in his vehicle. The actor pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI in court this week. The judge ordered Paulk to complete an alcohol treatment program and sentenced him to twelve months of unsupervised probation. The marijuana charge was dismissed.

It isn't Paulk's first run-in with the law either. In 2013, he was arrested on domestic violence charges, but managed to avoid jail time by striking a plea deal.
