From allegedly ordering drugs to your home to allegedly swimming in a canal, athletes have shown us sometimes they haven’t made the best decisions. MLB, NHL, NBA and NFL players aren’t safe from the embarrassment of their actions and some of these are just too hilarious and seem too good to be true. Whatever the case, here is a list of the 7 dumbest athlete arrests. 

7. Chris Perez, MLB 

Alleged offense: Sending weed to your house addressed to your dog’s name

Really, bro? You couldn’t arrange a deal to pick it up somewhere less suspicious? You made $7.3 million last year and you couldn’t afford to make other arrangements? I can think of 7.3 million reasons not to get it delivered to your place of residence. The real victim here is the dog. Poor Brody. Dumbest power move I’ve ever heard.

6. Clay Buchholz, MLB 

Alleged offense: Stole computers from a … MIDDLE SCHOOL

Back in 2004, Buchholz stole computers and tried to resell them. You know they have tracking devices and ID numbers on them right, Clay? Go lather up on some more BullFrog.

5. Claude Giroux, NHL

Alleged offense: Grabbed a male officers buttocks

Not just once but apparently multiple times, Giroux got a little grabby with an officer north of the border. The officer then arrested him. Pretty open and shut case if you ask me. Didn’t we learn this in Kindergarten? Keep your hands and feet to yourself?

4. Pat McAfee, NFL

Alleged offense: Swam in a canal while intoxicated

Swimming in a canal and claiming you are wet because it was raining is the best thing I’ve heard in a long time. What a move under pressure.

3. Gilbert Arenas, NBA

Alleged offense: Caught with 100, yes 100, pound of fireworks in his car

100 pounds of fireworks? What were you planning to do with all that, Gilly?

2. Patrick Kane, NHL

Alleged offense: Assaulted a cab driver over 20 cents

20 cents? Two dimes? Four nickels? Really, Patty? I really hope that new contract worth $10 million will help you out next time.

1. Plaxico Burress, NFL

Offense: Shot himself in the leg, arrested on weapons charges. 

Burress accidentally shot himself in the leg at a nightclub in Manhattan back in 2008 and went to jail after being charged with criminal possession of a handgun. The guy shot himself in the leg. #therearenowords
