Some pro athletes are magnets to trouble.

Consciously or unconsciously, it seems they’re always causing bad things to happen to themselves as well as to the people around them.

Here are nine of the biggest troublemakers in sports over the years. Please read, enjoy and in the comments share a list of your top problem starters in sports.

9). Terrell Owens.

They say talk is cheap, but in five-time NFL All-Pro receiver T.O.’s case his mouth landed him on this list. During a point in his career, everywhere No. 81 went he stirred up turmoil. Owens’ big mouth eventually cost him jobs with the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles as well as Dallas Cowboys.

8). Cedric Benson.

The 28-year-old NFL running back is making headlines for all the wrong reasons these days. This summer he was arrested and accused of beating down his roommate. Last summer, he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly punching a bar employee in the face.

7). Ron Artest.

He’s been quiet lately, but for a while the NBA star made lots of noise. His signature moment was the infamous Detroit Pistons-Indiana Pacers melee in November 2004 when he punched a fan who ran onto the court. Artest was suspended the remainder of the year (72 games) and lost approximately $7 million.

6). Ben Roethlisberger.

On the field, he’s won two Super Bowl rings as the quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Off of it, he’s caused nothing but trouble for himself. In 2006, Big Ben almost died in a motorcycle accident. And last year, he was accused of sexual assault for the second time which resulted in a four-game suspension.

5). Adam “Pacman” Jones.

Jones is the epitome of a troublemaker. His rap sheet dates back to his days at West Virginia University, when he was placed on probation for a brawl. Because of his off-the-field troubles, including allegedly attacking a stripper, the NFL cornerback was kicked out the league in 2007 for an entire year.

4). Barry Bonds.

Baseball will never be the same because of him. Besides his reputation, the home run king caused irreparable damage to the sport as the central figure in the Steroid Era. In the court of law, he was just convicted of obstruction of justice, but in the people’s court, he was and will forever be a cheater.

3). Michael Vick.

Yes, change is possible. Since his release from federal prison in 2009, Vick has been a model citizen in his efforts to stop illegal dogfighting around the country. This month he took his anti-dogfighting battle to Washington, D.C. in an attempt for tougher legislation. Nevertheless, that doesn’t wipe the electrifying quarterback’s slate clean.

2). Mike Tyson.

In 1988, he blooded up ex-boxer Mitch Green in a street fight. In 1992, he was jailed for raping beauty contestant Desiree Washington. In 1997, he bit off a part of Evander Holyfield’s ear inside the ring. At one time, the former undisputed heavyweight champ was no doubt one of the biggest troublemakers in sports.

1). O.J. Simpson.

The NFL Hall of Fame running back racially divided the entire nation during the murder trial of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. But if possibly getting away with murder wasn’t trouble enough, in 2007, The Juice was charged with armed robbery and kidnapping and subsequently sentenced to 33 years in prison.
