    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Meets With Prison Inmates, Talks About Being Arrested

    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson wasn't always a pillar of the community.

    The actor posted a photo of himself talking to a group of inmates at a prison today, and it appears that Johnson has taken his hard-earned experiences as a teenager and put them to good use by addressing men who find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

    He captioned the pic, "I was arrested multiple x's as a teen (fighting/stupid sh-t) Said if I can make it, so can you," he said. "Stay strong #LockUp."

    Back in 2010, Johnson told Metro that he had been arrested eight or nine times in his teen years.

    "I got in trouble a lot when I was younger. By the time I was 16, I had been arrested eight or nine times for a variety of things, terrible things that I shouldn't have been doing."

    "Much later in life, once I got out of college, I started to understand the power of seeing your potential and what that means."

    Clearly he sees potential in the locked-up men and is encouraging them to get their lives straight...just as he did.
