Ten-time All-Star Kirby Puckett was also a two-time World Series champion, and the hero of Game 6 of the 1991 World Series against the Atlanta Braves -- remembered as one of the best match-ups of all time.

But after his retirement, the Hall-of-Famer began to draw a different kind of attention. His ex-wife told police he threatened to kill her, and told Sports Illustrated that he tried to strangle her, had locked her in the basement and even held a gun to her head.

Puckett was also accused of groping a woman in a restaurant bathroom, leading to this mug shot. Although he beat the charges, Puckett's reputation never recovered.

Puckett died after suffering a stroke in 2006.
