Todd Marinovich QB Ex-Los Angeles Raiders

Todd Marinovich, ex first round pick of the Los Angeles Raiders, was arrested on Friday for skipping out on drug rehab in connection with an unusual arrest in 2005.
Marinovich has a pretty extensive, and pretty (sometimes) hilarious rap sheet.
Prior to winning a Rose Bowl with the USC trojans, he was arrested for cocaine possession while attending school in 1991.
In 1997, he was arrested for suspicion of growing marijuana and possession of narcotics. He had called 911 because a friend of his had gone unconscious after taking an unknown opiate.
In 2000, while playing backup QB for the AFL Los Angeles Avengers, was arrested for felony sexual assault at practice. A women had told police that he had raped her.
Later that year in 2000, Marinovich was at it again. He was arrested with felony heroin possession. He was also charged with possession of drug paraphernelia and driving on a suspended/revoked lisence. This arrest led to him getting cut from the Los Angeles Avengers.
In 2005, Marinovich was skateboarding in a no skateboarding area. While thrashing he was carrying a guitar case. The cops didn't like his gnarly moves and tried to arrest him but he fled, when cops found him and searched him and the guitar case they found meth, a spoon, and a hypodermic needle. He was arrested on felony possession of a controlled substance, resisting an officer, and unauthorized possession of a hypodermic needle.
Again in 2005 he was arrested after cops went into a bathroom and found Marinovich with an open shaving kit that contained syringes and a bent spoon. He fled on a childs bicycle and was caught 15 blocks away. After getting arrested, on the police report it said his occupation was an "unemployed artist". He was charged with violating his probation.
Marinovich states that his drug problems that kept the first rounder in the NFL barely 2 seasons started in high school, where he earned the nickname "Marijuana-Vich"
