Christian Hosoi was a skateboarding superstar, on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and signing large endorsement deals while in his teens. But his fame faded and his lifestyle brought him down, and in 2000, he was arrested on drug charges and sentenced to ten years in federal prison. After famous friends came forward to support Hosoi, his sentence was reduced and he began his career anew.
