Douchebag Athletes: Ray Rice and 11 Other Accused of Domestic Violence

douchebag athletes: Ray Rice cut by Ravens after elevator security video - athletes who beat their wives arrested for domestic violence

We already knew Ray Rice had somehow knocked his wife out cold in the elevator of an Atlantic City casino. Now we have all seen the video, so we know he did it with a vicious left hook. And, not surprisingly, this revelation has made Rice public enemy number one in America.

As sad as this situation is, however, it’s important to remember that Rice is just one of many pro athletes accused of domestic violence. This has been a major problem in the sports world for a long time. And unless sports leagues or franchises start instituting zero tolerance policies toward athletes who beat the women in their lives, it’s not going away any time soon.

Today we’re going to take a look at 11 other famous pro douchebag athletes accused of domestic violence over the years. Tragically, the list is hardly comprehensive. Instead, it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
