Ray Lewis was charged with double murder following a post Super Bowl party in Atlanta in 2000. A fight broke out between Lewis and his companions and another group of people after the Super Bowl, resulting in the stabbing deaths of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar. The charges for murder were later dismissed in a plea deal. No one ever served time for the murder of the two black Atlanta men. (AP)
