Bob Probert, 1989
Yes, even hockey players get messed up with drugs every once in a while. Bob Probert was half of the Detroit Red Wings’ legendary “Bruise Brothers,” a duo of enforcers that terrorized the ice in the 80s and 90s.
Probert racked up penalty minutes like they were going out of style, and one of the things that fueled his aggressiveness was cocaine. In 1989, customs agents at the border between Michigan and Ontario pulled Probert over and discovered 14 grams of cocaine hidden in his underwear.
He was arrested and indefinitely suspended from the NHL. Even after his career ended, Probert couldn’t keep away from the drugs, at one point being busted and Tased by cops while fighting with people about drugs.
