R. Allen Stanford, the Texas billionaire who has Antiguan citizenship, was charged Tuesday by the SEC for allegedly trying to bilk some 50,000 customers out of $8 billion.

But this wasn't Stanford's first brush with controversy.

The cricket fanatic, who sponsors the Stanford Super Series, where Caribbean cricketers play against the national English team for $20 million in prize money, was recently caught on camera in the player's balcony of the English team with his arms around the players' girlfriends and wives, who were sitting on his lap.

Stanford, who was knighted by the Antiguan government, the first American to receive that honor, apologized for the behavior.
