Irvin experienced his share of legal troubles in the '90s, including a 1996 arrest on charges of cocaine possession, a sexual assault charge involving a Dallas Cheerleader and an alleged involvement in an assault against a Dallas football player. Following his retirement from the NFL, Irvin was again arrested on drug possession charges, as well as charged with yet another sexual assault. In 2009, he claimed to be the victim of a carjacking attempt while stopped at a light in Dallas, but the investigation was dropped when police failed to receive cooperation from Irvin.
