    TMZ is reporting that Los Angeles Laker Ron Artest was pulled over driving an Indy-style car through the streets of Los Angeles today.

    A perplexed police officer was thankful that Artest was wearing his helmet, but we're not exactly sure why the basketball player was driving a race car down a commercial street.

    There is speculation over whether Artest even owns this car which had expired plates.

    This was pretty wild, but let's take a look at some other stunts athletes have pulled in the past.

    It's sad when one athlete makes this list twice. Not too long ago, the wide receiver from the Cincinnati Bengals was named "Chad Johnson," but then he changed it to "Chad Ochocinco."

    And that's when we learned that Chad couldn't count in Spanish.
