With the help of my trusty research assistant Jeff Gasser, I spent the past month looking up publicly recorded cases of athletes charged with serious crimes. My new story on SI.com reveals what I found. Here's a hint --- I was wrong about an athlete being arrested every other day for a serious crime. It's actually one every other day. And I'm only talking about pro and college football and basketball players.
