Woods, Qyntel

Charge: Animal cruelty

Arrest Date: January 21, 2005

Franchise: Portland Trailblazers

Age 23

Details: Investigators began looking into Woods following a 2014 television report that alleged his pet pit bull was abandoned and covered in serious bite wounds.  Four months later he plead guilty to misdemeanor animal abuse to avoid more serious charges of dog fighting, and was sentenced to probation and community service.  The Blazers waived Woods immediately following his plea.

Barnes, Matt

Charge: Driving on a suspended license, threatening a police officer

Arrest Date: July 30, 2012

Franchise: Los Angeles Lakers

Age 31

Details: Barnes’ second career arrest started innocuously enough when he was arrested for an outstanding traffic citation, but quickly escalated to a felony when he threatened a police officer.  His demonic smile makes for one of the better mugshots – much better than his low-key mugshot following a domestic violence arrest in 2010.
