American Idol contestant Jacob Lusk had a run in with the law before getting his break on American Idol. Lusk was cited for riding an L.A. metro train without a ticket in February 2009, when he did not appear for his court date a warrant was issued for his arrest. In November 2010 after being selected as a contestant on American Idol, Lusk was arrested following a traffic stop when the warrant was discovered. Lusk was arrested and taken to court the next day, he pled to the charge and was sentenced to 3 days in jail and 2 years probation. He would not have been able to compete as a contestant on American Idol if he was still on probation. Fortunately, the judge agreed to terminate his probation early so that Lusk could compete.
