San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith has made things really hard on himself in recent years. He's played well when he's been out on the football field. But off of it, he's gotten himself into trouble over and over and over again, and he doesn't seem to realize that, if he's not careful, he's going to run out of second chances and find himself out of the NFL before long.
Most recently, Smith got arrested last Sunday afternoon after he got pulled to the side by a TSA agent at Los Angeles International Airport and insinuated that he had a bomb on him. He was only kidding. But obviously, a bomb is not something to joke about at an airport. So Smith got cuffed and hauled off to jail where he was eventually charged with one count of "false report of a bomb threat" before being released.
Fortunately, no one else in the sports world got hit with a charge quite like that this week. Smith was the only one dumb enough to yell "Bomb!" while attempting to board a plane. But there were quite a few other sports-related folks who endured some tough situations over the course of the last seven days. From a former NBA player who was accused of rape to a minor league baseball player who took a 90-mph fastball to the face, these are the 10 Sports People Who Had a Worse Week Than You.
