8) Don King

Many people know boxing promoter Don King for his big hair, colorful personality, and the mega-fights he’s put on during his many years involved in the sport, but what most don’t know is that he was involved in some very serious altercations with the law before he ascended into international fame— most notably a count of second degree murder when he stomped an employee who owed him money to death, along with a manslaughter charge after shooting a man who robbed his casino as well. Several years of his early life were spent in prison.
