Ohio State Recruit Arrested: Chris Carter and Sports' Weirdest Sex Scandals
Ohio State Recruit Arrested: Chris Carter's Odd Obsession Lands Him in Jail
Chris Carter may have killed any chances he had of fulfilling his lifelong dream.
The Ohio State recruit was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of sexual imposition, stemming from his own admission that he fondled as many as eight younger girls while pretending to measure them for ROTC uniforms.
The 6'5", 350-pound lineman and three-star recruit had committed to joining the Buckeyes, but his future at the school appears to be in doubt after this odd scandal has rocked his Ohio high school.
Though Carter's situation is certainly crazy, is it the weirdest sex scandal we've ever seen in the world of sports?
Maybe it is. Maybe it isn't.
Here are the 10 most bizarre scandals in sports history.
10. Jackie Gallagher-Smith Sinks a Birdie
Jackie Gallagher-Smith was a golfer on the LPGA tour, and Gary Robinson was her caddie who just also happened to be her baby daddy.
Though Gallagher-Smith was married, that didn't stop Robinson from putting his nine iron into the 18th hole.
After two months of a "let's get busy in the sand trap" fling, Gallagher-Smith turned up pregnant with Robinson's child.
While he was still busy toting her clubs around, she made the decision to keep the baby...but raise it with her husband.
Essentially, Robinson became nothing more than a sperm donor who still had the unfortunate task of carrying a woman's bags for a living.
9. Eugene Robinson's Unique Pre-Super Bowl Preparations
So how you would you prepare for the Super Bowl? What would you do to get ready for the biggest game of your career?
Would you eat a nice pre-game meal? Would you you get a good night's sleep?
Or would you a solicit a prostitute the night before the NFL Championship game?
If you're Eugene Robinson, you do the last one the same day you win the team's Bart Starr Award for being a player of high moral character.
8. Karen Owen and The Duke F**k List
Imagine having a woman criticize your sexual performance to you.
Now, imagine her making fun of your lack of lovemaking skills in front of a group of her friends.
That really blows, doesn't it?
Finally, imagine a woman making fun of your inadequacies in the bedroom in PowerPoint form, then plastering it all over the Internet for the entire world to see.
That's like living out a nightmare, isn't it?
Well, that pretty much describes Karen Owen and the Duke F**k List, which I find rather ironic because she criticizes all these dudes when she's probably like a four at best.
7. Mark Chmura Goes Back To High School

You ever seen Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead?
Well, Mark Chmura decided to change to the title to Don't Tell Mom I'm Nailing the Babysitter at Her After-Prom Party.
The NFL tight end and his 41-year-old pal allegedly thought they looked 16 and decided to attend the post-prom party along with the Chmura family's babysitter.
As the story goes, Chmura got hammered, so did the 17-year-old girl who takes care of his children and the two decided to throw caution to the win and fornicate.
Chmura was charged with child enticement and third-degree sexual assault, but in a not-so-surprising move, he was acquitted of all charges.
He later remarked that attending a high school party was something a married man shouldn't do.
No, it's something any many over age 18 shouldn't do, Mark.
6. The Minnesota Vikings Love Boat

In October 2005, 17 members of the Minnesota Vikings—including Daunte Culpepper and Fred Smoot—threw an all-day booze cruise on Lake Minnetonka along with roughly 80 other guests.
Oh yeah, maybe I should mention that the players invited a bunch of hookers from Atlanta and Minnesota to enjoy the beautiful weather and the water.
I swear the women who sell their bodies to make money were there only to have fun in the sun.
OK, I'm lying. The boat trip basically turned into an orgy as several Vikings player performed sexual acts on the prostitutes in front of the boat's crew.
So just picture this, and you'll get the idea: The combination of a porno film, the NFL Sunday ticket and a Carnival cruise.
5. Chris Carter Is The Worst Tailor EVER
An 18-year-old senior at John F. Kennedy High School in Ohio, Chris Carter was arrested yesterday after a 15-year-old girl told police that Carter had escorted her out of class and into a room behind the school's auditorium, where he told her needed to measure her for her ROTC uniform.
The police report stated: "Once inside the room, [Carter] asked the victim to take off her sweat shirt and shirt so he could take her measurements. He cut off the lights...and stated, 'I need you to take your bra off.' The arrested male then put his arms under her arms from behind and attempted to pull her bra up."
The victim refused to cooperate and reported Carter to the police. Carter than admitted he had used the same trickery on as many as eight other girls and had kept a notebook with their measurements, which he turned over to police.
According to the police report, another girl admitted to falling victim to the same ruse: "Carter asked her to take her clothes off. The victim took off everything except her panties."
This sounds like something you'd see on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, not something that would befall a coveted college recruit.
Carter will be seeing the inside of a jail cell long before he steps foot on a football field, but at least he's a fan of measurements.
He'll have plenty of guys willing to be his tailor when he's locked up.
4. Voyeurism For Aston Villa
Two Aston Villa soccer players—Dwight Yorke and Mark Bosnich—had the guts to do what no guy would ever dare to do: Buy a bachelor pad, fill it with cameras and then proceed to film everything that goes on inside the walls of the house.
Well, it was no biggie at first, as the only thing that was caught on camera was your run-of-the-mill orgies featuring well-known athletes.
Sense the sarcasm?
Anyway, things really got juicy when a tape was found that featured Bosnich wearing a skirt, bending over and getting whipped from behind.
If the fact that Bosnich did that isn't hilarious enough for you, register this: The tape was discovered in the trash outside his home.
This should teach us two things. One, karma really is a, well, you know. And two, never film anything you don't want someone else to see.
3. Michael Vick Is "Ron Mexico"
In March 2005, a woman named Sonya Elliott filed a civil suit against Michael Vick, alleging that she had contracted genital herpes from the NFL quarterback in 2002 after he had unprotected sex with her despite being aware of his condition.
What turned this from interesting story to incredibly hilarious, however, was when Elliott alleged that Vick had been treated for herpes under the alias "Ron Mexico" prior to the two hooking up.
Think Anchorman and our neighbors to the South, and that's where he came up with the greatest alias EVER.
The case was eventually resolved out-of-court in 2006, but we will always be able to remember the times when Vick was hilarious-alias-but-not-so-hilarious-STD Vick rather than I-kill-dogs Vick.
2. Marv Albert Enjoys "Face Sit"

For some reason, longtime NBA broadcaster Marv Albert decided it would be a good idea to carry on a 10-year relationship with his mistress.
But the worse part was yet to come.
Albert's little lady on the side accused him of biting her on the ass, sodomizing her and forcing her to perform oral sex, while also claiming that Albert would make her "face sit" for extended periods of time while he wore women's lingerie.
DNA tests did eventually prove that the bitemarks on the woman's posterior were Albert's, so he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and battery charges in order to have the sodomy charges dropped.
The important terms to remember from Albert's debacle are: "face sit," "forcible sodomy" and "cross-dressing."
Oh, yeah, remember the word "Yes" as well, because Albert has completely rebounded from the fiasco and is still able to use his signature catch phrase.
1. Fritz Peterson and Mike Kekich In The Ultimate Wife Swap
Ever joke around with your buddy about trading girlfriends just to see what it's like?
Well, in the 1970s, two New York Yankees actually did it.
Fritz Peterson and Mike Kekich attended a swinger's party together with both of their wives, made the ole' switcharoo and found out what it's like to do your friend's wife rather than simply date her.
It worked out pretty well, too. Actually, maybe it worked out too well.
Peterson and Kekich liked each others' wives so much that they switched wives again...permanently.
I imagine the nuptials went something like this: "Do you take your friend's wife to be your lawfully wedded wife in sickness and in health..."
