In March, word came out that Jalen Rose had been arrested for drinking and driving. That was bad and then things got worse when he was suspended because he didn't tell his ESPN employers about the incident. And now Rose has been sentenced to 20 days in jail for the offense, according to Fox News in Detroit.

Rose was involved in a crash in his hometown Detroit in March after veering off the road. A hospital test showed his blood-alcohol content as 0.12 percent, above Michigan's legal driving limit of 0.08 percent. According to the report, he informed police he had six martinis that night before driving home. He plead guilty to the offense.

He was also given one year probation. He'll begin his sentence next Tuesday.

Rose played 13 NBA seasons and is now an NBA analyst for ESPN.
