Jalen Rose, the former Michigan Fab Five star and NBA veteran, has been in the news quite a bit recently, but now it’s for the wrong reason. Rose was arrested on March 11th, the week his Fab Five documentary aired on ESPN, and cited on suspicion of driving drunk. According to WDIV’s report:
Rose was arrested just after 2 a.m. on Walnut Lake Road just west of Middlebelt Road after a passer-by called officers to report seeing a Cadillac Escalade that appeared to have gone off the side of the road. Police said Rose was not hurt but refused to take a breathalyzer at the scene and was taken to Henry Ford Hospital hospital for a blood test. Police have not released the results of the blood test.
Had Rose been found guilty of DUI, he most likely would have been sacked by the LBS Nut Bag, but we must reserve judgment until the results of the blood test are released.
What makes the timing of the arrest extremely notable is that Rose stirred up controversy in his documentary saying he hated Duke. Rose said he felt Duke only recruited Uncle Toms which prompted a bold response from Bobby Hurley, and more recently, a response from Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. You have to figure at this point that many people feel it’s the karma police getting Rose back for the documentary, but we’ll wait for the official word before going all in.Google+
