The craziest NBA arrest stories

Allen Iverson

Even the beloved A.I. has been to jail. In 1993, Iverson was part of a mob fight at a bowling alley in Hampton, Va. Along with several of his friends, Iverson was arrested after allegedly striking a woman in the head with a chair. Ouch! Originally, the All-American 76ers shooting guard was sentenced to 15 years in prison, but after spending four months at a Newport News correctional facility, A.I. was pardoned by Virginia Governor Douglas Wilder. The overturning of Iverson’s case was due to insufficient evidence, as his attorney stated that he left the bowling alley as soon as the mob erupted.
