Jalen Rose has been in the news a lot this month. But he's about to be in it even more and not for some comments he made in a documentary.

In March Rose was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving
in West Bloomfield Township, Michigan. Rose who is of course a former NBA player, part of the famous "Fab Five" and now an analyst for ESPN, was arrested around 2 a.m. on March 11. He is accused of operating a vehicle while impaired.

Keith Davidson, a Los Angeles-based attorney representing Rose, says the former player and his team "look forward to working with Michigan authorities and addressing any and all outstanding issues in court and not in the press."

Ken Berger of reached an ESPN spokesman about Rose's situation and the word is ESPN executives are looking into the DUI allegations against Rose.

Rose, 38, played 13 years in the NBA and reached the NBA Finals once with Indiana in 2000. With the Fab Five at Michigan he played in two national title games in 1992 and 1993.

He's been in headlines a lot recently with comments he made during an ESPN documentary on the famous team, calling Duke players "Uncle Toms."

Kind of interesting this is just coming out now, some 20 days later. I don't know if that's ordinary, but maybe at least it's something I'm curious about.
