1977: Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones is arrested and charged with possession of heroin for the purpose of trafficking after his Toronto hotel suite is raided by Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He was released on $25,000 bail and would eventually plead guilty to a reduced charge of heroin possession and receive a one-year suspended sentence.
