Former NBA star avoids jail time



rodmanTwo months after his arrest, former NBA star and Basketball Hall of Fame member Dennis Rodman has reportedly been sentenced to three years of informal probation.

According to USA Today, which cited online court records, Rodman pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges following his January arrest on charges of driving under the influence in Newport Beach, Calif.

As part of the plea deal, Rodman will have to complete a nine-month alcohol-education program and pay $390 in fines.

The Los Angeles Times reported that when Rodman, 56, was pulled over on January 11th he was more than two time over the legal alcohol limit.

According to the Times, Rodman pleaded guilty to one count of driving under the influence of alcohol and one count of driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit.

Rodman also received three years of informal probation and was sentenced to community service in February 2017 after pleading guilty to driving on the wrong way on a Southern California freeway and subsequently providing false information to the police.

Rodman spent 14 seasons in the NBA, earning reputations for both his rebounding prowess and his antics — both off the court and in his on-court persona of “The Worm.”

He won five NBA championships, two with the Detroit Pistons and three with the Chicago Bulls and earned the Defensive Player of the Year Award twice and led the NBA in rebounding four times.
