Lisa Robin Kelly, who played the sister of Eric Forman (portrayed by actor Topher Grace) on "That's 70s Show" was allegedly arrested on a felony charge of corporal injury upon a spouse Saturday morning, according to a report by TMZ.com yesterday.

The 42-year-old actress played Forman's older sibling on the show from 1998 to 2003. She was replaced in six episodes by actress Christina Moore, reportedly due to her tendency of hard-partying, before the character was dropped altogether.

The blonde who looked younger than her years during the time on the show, appears to have aged rather quickly over the past decade and is almost unrecognizable. She remains in custody at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department with bail set at $50,000. This isn't the first time she's been put in handcuffs either.

Kelly plead guilty to a DUI she received in 2010 in North Carolina, and was ordered to 12 months of probation and also had to pay a large fine. She's been credited with just one role since her time on "That 70s Show," a 2005 short called "The Food Chain: A Hollywood Scarytale."

Actor Eddie Furlong , who is probably best known as the child star who played John Connor in "Terminator 2: Judgement Day," is another celeb who seems to have aged rather badly and has a history of arrests involving domestic disputes including assault. Last January he was put into handcuffs after violating a restraining order taken out by his estranged wife.

According to court records, actress Rachael Kneeland wrote that the "Green Hornet" actor allegedly, "grabbed me, bruised me, pushed me ... left messages saying he would hire people to come and beat me with chains and bats. He is smoking cocaine and doing other various drugs. He is very unpredictable."

Charlie Sheen has famously been accused of a number of incidents involving domestic violence. On Christmas Day in 2009, the former "Two and a Half Men" star was arrested for second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief in Aspen, Colorado. The 46-year-old actor resolved the felony domestic violence charges in a plea deal by agreeing to serve his jail term at a Malibu, California, rehab center.

The "Major League" star has managed to stay out of handcuffs since his firing from the popular CBS television show, and recently promised that his new FX show, "Anger Management" will achieve "awesome" success.
