I'm currently writing a final paper on Athlete Behavior. I am trying to create a list of players in each of the major sports of on-field or off-field actions that either led them to be arrested or suspended by the league. I am not to knowledgeable about the NBA as I don't follow it as much as other sports. Any suggestions of NBA players I can use?

There's lots of articles involving the Ron Artest brawl with the Indiana Pacers and the Detroit Pistons, which happened a few years ago. So that topic would be very easy to research and especially since it is a well known brawl and very easy to write about.
