"American Idol" finalist Corey Clark was arrested in October 2002 by Kansas cops following a disturbance in his family's Topeka home. He was charged with a variety of misdemeanors, including battery on four law enforcement officers, battery on his sister, and endangering a child. Producers booted him from the second season of the show in March 2003 for not disclosing the arrest. In a June deal with prosecutors, Clark pleaded no contest to "obstructing legal process" and was sentenced to six months unsupervised probation and ordered to pay $116 in court costs. Two other misdemeanor counts were dropped as part of the plea agreement.
