O.J. Simpson, Robbery and Kidnapping, 2007
Okay, yes, O.J. Simpson probably did murder his wife and her lover back in the day, but a courtroom circus has made us unable to include him on this list. Thankfully, the Hall of Famer couldn’t keep out of trouble, and in 2007 he embarked upon a totally new criminal adventure.
The same day that “If I Did It,” the book Simpson wrote about the murder he probably did, was released, O.J. and a crew of guys broke into a room at the Palace Station casino in Las Vegas and held the man inside at gunpoint, claiming that he’d stolen sports memorabilia. Cops brought him in and charged him with robbery and kidnapping (because he kept the man against his will) and he got up to 33 years in prison. Hope it was worth it!
