    Default Most Stupid Criminal Acts By Footballers


    Matty Pattison



    Caught red-handed: With his trousers down.

    Pattison was a Norwich player when he jolted upright one morning, glanced at the time and thought he was late for training. The player had enjoyed a heavy night out, and not wanting to incur the wrath of boss Glenn Roeder any further, he bolted from his bed, deciding not to waste time putting on any trousers. He then set about his drive to training.

    It wasn't until he was stopped by the police that he realised it was Sunday and thus he had the day off. Rather disappointingly, a later court hearing revealed that his lack of trousers was just a rumour.

    No.9 Roman Bednar


    Caught red-handed: Buying drugs outside his home.

    In 2009, as West Brom fought against relegation from the top flight, their Czech striker Roman Bednar was apparently caught up in a News of the World sting. The newspaper released photos of the striker apparently handing over £420 to a man in a car to pay for cocaine and cannabis. As the story leaked, his club immediately suspended the player pending further investigation.

    The player was cautioned by West Midlands police and was granted permission to return to action from the beginning of the 09/10 season by the Football Association following his suspensio

    No.8 Glen Johnson


    Caught red-handed: Stealing bathroom fittings.

    Criminal mastermind Glen Johnson and his accomplice, Millwall's Ben May, were foiled by an eagle-eyed 74-year-old B&Q security guard as they attempted a low level heist in 2007.

    Johnson, then a Portsmouth player but on loan from Chelsea and on a reported £30,000 a week, was seen placing a toilet seat in the packaging of a cheaper item and stashing some taps underneath a sink before heading to the checkout.
    The two men were arrested by police and handed £80 fines on the spot.

    No.7 Diego Maradona


    Caught red-handed: Peppering journalists with an air rifle.

    Maradona has specialised in both on- and off-field scrapes throughout his career, but his trigger happiness in 1998 caught the attention of the legal system more than any of his other antics.

    When journalists camped outside the former Argentina captain's home, he didn't take too kindly to the intrusion. Deciding that the metal gates were not doing enough to keep the press pack away, Maradona perched his rifle on a car and fired pellets through the gate's metal bars.

    He has yet to serve a two-year sentence owing to a peculiar facet of Argentine law.

    No.6 Dai Thomas


    Caught red-handed: Running with a hooligan gang at Euro 2000.

    Dai Thomas was a Cardiff City footballer and former Wales U-21 international when he decided to spend his summer in Belgium at Euro 2000. Thomas, it seemed, hadn't gone to sample Belgian chocolate and take in the skills of Zinedine Zidane and Luis Figo, however.

    The footballer was caught on film as part of a mob involved in violent clashes with police in Brussels. The player was arrested and deported and suspended by Cardiff, being released from his contract three months later. Thomas was later jailed and banned from football grounds for further hooligan offences.

    No.5 Peter Storey


    Caught red-handed: Importing porn.

    Ex-Arsenal and England international Peter Storey had been acquainting himself with trouble for a few years before he received a custodial sentence for importing porn in 1990. Storey received a suspended sentence for running a brothel at the end of the '70s before serving three years for his involvement in a gold coin counterfeit ring.

    However, it was Storey's attempt to import 20 European porn videos inside a tyre that attracts attention here for its sheer tomfoolery. He served slightly more than a day per video after a judge slapped him with a 28-day sentence.

    No.4 Tony Adams


    Caught red-handed: Drunk driving.

    Prior to revealing his alcoholism in 1996, Adams was reportedly involved in a number of binge-fuelled scrapes, but the most high-profile occurred in 1990.

    The Arsenal captain ploughed his car into a wall near his Southend-on-Sea home in May 1990, and was found to have exceeded the legal drink-drive limit by four times. After being left out of that summer's World Cup squad, Adams' torment continued in December when he was sentenced to four months in prison, although he only served two.

    Despite his sentence, Adams led Arsenal to the title in the 1990/91 season.

    No.3 Peter Swan


    Caught red-handed: Match fixing.

    Peter Swan, Tony Kay and David Layne were involved in perhaps British football's most infamous match-fixing scandal back in the 1960s.

    The People newspaper exposed the scam that saw the three players bet against their own team, Sheffield Wednesday, in a game with Ipswich. Ipswich ran out 2-0 winners. Swan was given a four-month prison sentence and an eight-year ban from football. Had Swan not placed the £50 bet, he would've stood a good chance of making the '66 World Cup squad.

    No.2 Mickey Thomas


    Caught red-handed: Passing forged bank notes

    Talented Welsh Winger Mickey Thomas became most notorious for his off-field antics despite a career that saw him play for Manchester United and score the free-kick that allowed Wrexham to knock then-league champions Arsenal out of the FA Cup in 1992.

    Thomas was jailed for 18 months after being caught handing out dodgy £10 and £20 notes to Wrexham trainees and served part of his sentence with a cellmate who'd killed two people and cut off their heads. Thomas was feted inside and was snapped by the News of the World sipping champagne whilst behind bars.

    No.1 César


    Caught red-handed: Involved in a heist of club bonuses

    Back in March 2001, Brazil handed a call-up to César Aparecido Rodrigues, attracting note because of the rampaging right-back's criminal past.

    As a 19 year old playing for Juventus of Sao Paulo, César used insider knowledge of the club's bonus structure to inform two friends that there was $100,000 lying around waiting to be split among the squad. His friends swooped and the three of them split the swag but failed to realise that purchasing new cars in cash may not be the most inconspicuous way to spend the readies.

    After serving four years, César later went on to play for the likes of Lazio and Inter in Serie A.
