Jim Morrison had several brushes with the law throughout his life. Here’s a breakdown of Jim’s extensive rap sheet.

Jim’s first arrest was on September 28, 1963 in Tallahasee, Florida, with charges of petty larceny, disturbing the peace, resisting arrest and public drunkenness at a football game. Jim was, allegedly, getting rowdy and making fun of the football players and people in the crowd. He then, apparently, stole an umbrella and an officer's helmet from the open window of a police car. The charges were eventually dropped, and he only had to pay a small fine.
