Bryant, Kobe

Charge: Sexual assault

Arrest Date: July 4, 2003

Franchise: Los Angeles Lakers

Age 24

Details: In one of the most famous NBA arrest cases, Bryant was arrested on sexual assault charges following claims by a 19-year old in Colorado.  She accused him of raping her in a hotel room where she was an employee.  Details emerged, and Bryant admitted to cheating on his wife and having sex with her but denied the rape charges.  The case was eventually dismissed after the accuser refused to testify following inconsistencies in her story.  They did settle a civil case out of court, though terms of that settlement are unknown.
