Dennis Rodman was reportedly arrested late Saturday night on after he was pulled over for a traffic violation and handcuffed following a failed field sobriety test, according to a report in the celebrity and gossip website, TMZ.
Rodman, who was arrested on suspicion of DUI, reportedly blew .08 over the legal limit and remained in jail for seven hours before he was released, TMZ reported.
Rodman, now 56, has spent the years following his retirement making news off the court — sometimes for the wrong reasons. He once wore a wedding dress to promote his 1996 autobiography, Bad as I Wanna Be. He dated the singer Madonna and was briefly married to the actress Carmen Electra. He also dabbled in professional wrestling, with his last appearance on Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling in 2008.
Infamously, he made headlines and drew widespread condemnation for visiting North Korea and calling the dictator Kim Jong-Un his friend.
He’s also had traffic troubles in the past. He pleaded no contest to a drunk driving charge in 2004 and was charged in a hit and run accident in 2016.
For his basketball career, Rodman was an all-time great, a ferocious rebounder and defended who played a big role on five championship teams — three of which came with the Chicago Bulls (one) the Detroit Pistons (two).
He’s a Hall of Famer who played 14 seasons in the NBA after being drafted early in the second round by the Pistons.
He played for the Piston, Bulls, San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers over his tenured career. A defensive stalwart, Rodman averaged 13 rebounds over his lengthy career, which featured two Defensive Player of the Year awards and two All-Star appearances.
