Sports figure(s) involved: Eddie Johnson
Known as "Fast Eddie" for his speed and slashing ability, Johnson's nickname could've also easily referred to how quickly his life spun out of control after cocaine addiction and legal trouble found him banned from the league in 1987. Things didn't get any better for Johnson in the years to come. Since he was banned, Johnson claims he's been arrested at least 100 times, and the final straw came in 2008 when was found guilty of sexually assaulting an eight-year-old girl in August 2006. He was dealt a life sentence without parole.
