A list of famous athletes who have been convicted of DUI or other driving-related crimes, whether it be DUI manslaughter, vehicle related assault with a deadly weapon, grand theft auto, dangerous/reckless driving, or traditional drunk driving. Both professional and amateur athletes have been included, although amateurs on this list must have competed in the Olympics, or some other equal level of competition. I believe I've thought of them all, but if you think I've missed one, please feel free to let me know in the comments. For whatever reason, sports competitors (am I allowed to say "jocks"?) have a knack for getting themselves into trouble with the law.
