In news that should come as a surprise to exactly no one, Art Schlichter is in trouble with the law once again.
Schilichter, the fourth overall pick of the 1982 NFL draft, was arrested Wednesday after his probation officer reported that he tested positive for cocaine twice and refused to report for testing on several other occasions.
Schlichter was already under house arrest while he awaits sentencing after pleading guilty to swindling 50 people out of $2.5 million as part of a scheme to sell fake tickets to sporting events, then gambling away all the money he stole.
A college football star at Ohio State, Schlichter has spent most of his adult life looking for ways to finance his compulsive gambling. After playing sparingly as a rookie, the NFL suspended him for the entire 1983 season for gambling. He has served multiple prison terms totaling more than 10 years for various thefts, scams and other offenses.
