Game: Super Bowl XXXIV, Atlanta (2000)
People involved: Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens

Incident: Ray Lewis wasn't even playing in Super Bowl XXXIV, but he still found a way to become the center of negative attention. The former Ravens linebacker got into a brawl at an Atlanta nightclub, that resulted in the stabbing death of two men.

Result: Lewis ended up being acquitted of murder charges—because, you know—but did plead guilty to a misdemeanor obstruction of justice charge. Lewis would go on to win the Super Bowl the very next year, and be named MVP in the process. Remember kids, a year on probation beats life in jail every time.
