1967: Ten days after refusing induction into the U.S. Army, boxer Muhammad Ali is indicted by a federal grand jury in Houston, Texas. After pleading not guilty, he was released on $5,000 bond and ordered not to leave the continental United States. Ali would be found guilty on June 20, 1967, but the conviction was eventually reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
