20 Craziest Professional Athletes of All Time


2. O.J. Simpson

First he was known as one of the greatest running backs in football history. Then he was known as the guy who appeared in a bunch of Naked Gun movies.

But then it got really ugly. If you know Simpson, then you probably know him for his murder case, which was probably the most watched television event of the 1990s.

He was arrested for the alleged murder of his wife and one of her friends, and the entire case started off with a police car chase that was televised around the world. He ended up beating the charges, but it seems that karma got the best of him eventually.

O.J. just could not stay out of trouble. He is currently serving a 33 year prison sentence for trying to rob a sports memorabilia dealer in Las Vegas. It seems that some people just can’t stay out of trouble, and this was definitely the case with Simpson. He just didn’t know when to quit.
