Only one. Justin Timberlake being arrested due to Superbowl scandal in 2004 despite being killed in car accident back in 2001.

I will change it to Joey Fatone... I will make the corrections. In the meantime, I think John Lennon's death would have been prevented, especially with the offer of $10,000 made by Lorne Michaels along with the story of Paul McCartney saying how they wanted to perorm on the show...
