Martin Luther King Jr.
Civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested by Alabama police in February 1956 for his part in the Montgomery bus boycotts. He served a brief stint in jail. King was sentenced again two years later for civil disobedience and ordered jail time, but he never served it thanks to a public official who opted to pay the fines instead (and avoid King's notorious publicity).
