Johnson was a defensive end with a lot of talent but he made life difficult for himself. He was one of those NFL players who couldn’t stay out of trouble. The main reason why he’s on this list is because of a police raid on his home in 2006. They found an armory of unregistered firearms and arrested him because he violated parole.
Meanwhile, the NFL suspended him for eight games because it went against their code of conduct. It was ridiculous but sums up Johnson’s life pretty well. The moronic athlete committed numerous other legal offenses over the next few years and spent time in jail (via Reuters).
