However, the former NFL player also gives back. Marshawn founded the Fam 1st Family Foundation to help youth in his hometown of Oakland, Calif., as well as worldwide.

Among the organization's charitable efforts is an annual family football camp.

Meanwhile, Marshawn's seemingly-charmed life hasn't been without controversy. In 2008, he pled guilty to a hit-and-run accident that injured a woman. In 2012, he was arrested for DUI, and then the same tragic circumstances played out again in 2022.

For his part, Marshawn denied being drunk during this latest run-in with the law, but wasn't cooperative with the arresting officers, according to Las Vegas Review-Journal. He pled not guilty to charges in Las Vegas in March 2023.
