I would think about one-eighth have had a criminal record at one point in their career. I do not think it is as high as most people think, because they show on the news about a player getting arrested for something and talk about it for a week or so. You have to consider the fact that there are at least 1,800 players in the NFL and at least 350 players in the NBA. It would be safe to say that one in every eight players has a criminal record.

1 in every 15 NBA players and 1 in every 8 NFL players have had some criminal records I would have to guess.

There was a survey in 2011 that found that 7% of college athletes have a criminal record. Some experts believe that sports athletes have a higher instance of spousal abuse due to the physical nature of the games that they play.
