There aren’t that many celebrities that are from Oregon, let alone still live there. I’ve heard actor Sam Elliott still owns a house out in Willamette Valley and you’ll likely run into Jim Belushi promoting his cannabis goodies in Rogue Valley. There have been numerous celebrity sightings recently, too, but the question I have been nosy about is, how many celebrities have been arrested in Oregon recently? By recently, I mean within the past 4 or 5 years ago.

The arrest rate in Oregon over the past five years or so has hovered close to 34 people arrested per 1,000 people, so that’s not too many people, but still.
