The often-controversial former basketball star and pop culture icon was pulled over for a traffic violation, and cops ended up administering field sobriety tests that he failed. He was cuffed, and taken to the police station in Newport Beach.
According to TMZ, Rodman was cooperative the whole time. He blew over the .08 limit once at the police station, though it’s not known at this point exactly how drunk he allegedly had been.
Rodman was booked in jail, where he stayed for seven hours until police determined he had sobered up enough to care for himself, and he was released on his own recognizance.
A rep for Rodman told the outlet that rehab may well be in the former athlete’s future, saying:
“Alcoholism has been a struggle on and off for Dennis the past 15 years… [and he’s going through] some tough personal issues.”
The rep also said he’s going to try to point Rodman back to rehab, as this isn’t the first time he’s struggled with alcohol. (He was also busted for DUI back in 1999, for one.)
Everyone goes through a struggle — and we can only hope Rodman gets help in his path.
