Reminiscing About Chiefs Players' Criminal Activity

Hello_medium

With a big hat tip to Bob Gretz this morning, we've come across  the San Diego Union-Tribune's NFL crime database.

The following are arrests and citations involving NFL players since 2000 that were more serious than speeding tickets. The San Diego Union-Tribune reviewed hundreds of news reports and public records in compiling it. The list cannot be considered comprehensive in part because some incidents may not have been reported and some public records proved to be elusive. Increased media coverage of incidents also probably accounts for more incidents listed in recent years.

Ah yes. Memories of Tamarick Vanover are dancing in my head. Or how about Andre Rison? He was always good for some moronic decision making.

The full list of the Kansas City Chiefs' indiscretions since 2000 is after the jump. Let us know your memories attached to these events.
