After three successful years at Mauldin High School in South Carolina, Kevin Garnett was arrested for a fight that occurred at school. The basketball star wasn’t actually involved in the fight, though, and the arrest was eventually expunged from his record.

Still, Garnett made the decision to transfer schools to Farragut Academy in Chicago, Illinois. While there, he developed into one of the very best high school players in America and he was named to and won the MVP of the McDonald’s All-American game.
