The 50 Most Infamous Criminals in Sports History

25. Marlon King

Sport: Soccer
Criminal History: Wounding, fraudulent use of a vehicle, handling stolen vehicles, sexual assault, criminal damage
Time Behind Bars: Three years

The footballer served less than two years in prison after sexual assaulting a woman at a nightclub, leaving her with a broken nose a split lip. He'd served a previous stint in jail when he was caught driving around a stolen BMW. But, perhaps, his crime that deserves the longest explanation was his arrest for chasing two women with a belt wrapped around his hand. One of the women claimed that King had attacked them for "no apparent reason." 

For good measure, the Birmingham City striker recently had his license suspended for driving his Mercedes 130 mph down a motorway in Leicestershire. Somebody tag this guy. Please.
