3. Suspended by NFL for betting on football games, gambled away his salaries, arrested
4. In and out of QB jobs for the NFL, arena football, and CFL, arrested
5. Up to 2006 he compiled about 10 years in prison and 44 jails, released and started a foundation for promoting awareness of gambling
And then wouldn't ya know it:
On February 9, 2011, reports emerged that Schlichter is under investigation for fraud. Schlichter was charged with a first-degree felony in connection with the theft of more than $1 million on February 14, 2010. On September 15, 2011 Schlichter was sentenced to 10 years in prison for his involvement in a million-dollar ticket scam. He tested positive for cocaine while serving a house arrest sentence on his fraud charges on January 19, 2012.
Well so much for that life...
He still managed to stay wealthy for longer than most NFLers lol
