TMZ reports at around 11pm Saturday, Dennis Rodman was driving in Newport Beach, and was pulled over by police for a traffic violation. Rodman failed a field sobriety test, was handcuffed and taken in.
Rodman was in jail 7 hours until police determined he was sober enough for release.
TMZ also reports Rodman was on 3 years probation at the time of his arrest from a plea he struck concerning a July 2016 wrong-way-crash he caused on an Orange Country, CA freeway. Witnesses say they saw him drinking at a karaoke bar before the incident, however Dennis wasn’t charged with DUI.
TMZ notes Rodman’s probation will now likely be revoked due to his new arrest. Plus, Dennis may face 2 years of prison, which he previously dodged with the plea from the above 2016 incident.
Rodman’s rep told TMZ, “Alcoholism has been a struggle on and off for Dennis the past 15 years”, he is dealing with “tough personal issues”, and he would talk with Dennis about returning to rehab.
