Famous Athletes Convicted of Drug Charges

List Criteria: Only convictions, being arrested doesn't count

A list of famous athletes who have been convicted of drug charges or related crimes, whether it be drug trafficking, drug dealing, or drug possession. Both professional and amateur athletes with drug problems have been included in this list, although amateurs on this list must have competed in the Olympics, or some other equal level of competition. I think I've included them all, but if you think I've missed any people in sports caught or busted for possession or drug use, please feel free to let me know in the comments. For whatever reason, jocks have an on going knack for getting themselves into trouble with the police.

    “Fast” Eddie Johnson

    f t g r p @
    Former Auburn Tigers standout "Fast Eddie" Johnson had a promising NBA career cut short after drug addiction led to his expulsion from the league in 1987. Through 2006, Johnson had around 100 arrests on his record for everything from burglary to sexual battery of a minor child to rape. It was a sexual battery charge that was the last straw for Johnson who received a life sentence as a result in 2008. He currently spends his days with no possibility of parole in the Santa Rosa Correctional Institution.
