Arnold Schwarzenegger Risked Jail Time for Mr. Europe Contest
Arnold Schwarzenegger spent a little time behind bars when he was 18, after he got caught skipping out on his military duties to attend a bodybuilding contest.
He won, but the stunt landed him two or three days in the army jail. Eventually, his officers supported his efforts and even helped him with food and a makeshift gym.
Schwarzenegger, who went on to win titles like Mr. Olympia and Mr. Universe, is the subject of the new ESPN Films documentary, “Arnold’s Blueprint.”
