Dennis Rodman Arrested

Five-time NBA champion Dennis Rodman spent the night in a California jail after being found by police to be driving under the influence of alcohol in Newport Beach on Saturday.

Rodman was stopped for an unspecified traffic violation and was taken to the station after failing the standardized field sobriety test. His breathalyzer results showed he was over the .08 legal limit, and the NBA Hall of Famer was subsequently charged with a DUI offence. The 56-year-old reportedly spent seven hours in jail before being released from custody on Sunday morning, after officers determined he was sober enough to care for himself. It is not the first time the former Chicago Bulls star has been charged for a driving offence.
Back in 2000, he was sentenced to probation and required to attend an alcohol program after pleading guilty to DUI. In 2003, he was again arrested for a similar violation. Rodman’s longtime agent, Darren Prince, told CNN that his client is dealing with “major personal issues” and needs to receive treatment for his addiction to alcohol.
