The San Diego Union-Tribune has posted an interesting list -- "arrests and citations involving NFL players since 2000 that were more serious than speeding tickets."

There are 455 of them, and the paper stresses that the list "cannot be considered comprehensive."

The incidents are presented in reverse chronological order, but they can be quickly rearranged by by name, position, or team. For instance, if you're curious -- and why wouldn't you be? -- you'll discover 10 Bears involved in 17 incidents. Leading the way is "Tank" Johnson, arrested on a felony gun charge in 2005 (pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor), on misdemeanor aggravated assault and resisting arrest charges in 2006 (the charges were dropped) and later the same year on charges of possessing an unlicensed gun (house arrest and four months in jail for violating probation), and for DUI in 2007 (the charge was dropped but so was Johnson, by the Bears).

In several of the 455 cases, charges were eventually dropped. If your favorite player made this list let's hope he's one of them.
