The 50 Craziest Sex Scandals in Sports History

39. Lance Rentzel Exposes Himself to 10-Year-Old

Sports figure(s) involved: Lance Rentzel
Year: 1970

With his marriage to the gorgeous Hollywood star, Joey Heatherton, and a productive receiving career with the Dallas Cowboys, Lance Rentzel seemed to have a pretty good thing going. However, it all came crashing down in 1970 when the star football player was arrested on charges of exposing himself to a 10-year-old girl in Dallas.

It wasn't the first time he'd done this either. A few years earlier, when Rentzel was playing with the Vikings, he'd been caught flashing two young girls at a park in St. Paul, Minn. Somehow, he was let off on charges of disorderly conduct for both of the incidents so long as he received psychiatric treatment. Beyond the fact that exposing yourself to young girls is completely and utterly inexcusable, Rentzel also needs to get his head checked for letting himself lose a woman like this. SMH.
