According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the NBA Hall of Famer’s blood alcohol content tested at .21—about 2.5 greater than the legal limit (0.08).
Rodman was arrested Jan. 13 in Newport Beach, California, after officers spotted him driving recklessly on the highway. He was taken into custody after failing a Breathalyzer test and has since been charged with two misdemeanor counts of DUI. Rodman is expected to be arraigned at the end of February.
Furthermore, Rodman’s recent DUI charges are a violation of his probation stemming from a 2016 car collision. The retried athlete was charged with hit-and-run after he allegedly drove in the wrong direction on the 5 freeway in Santa Ana, California, causing other vehicles to crash. Rodman ended up pleading guilty to three lesser charges and was sentenced to three years on probation. If the judge decides to revoke his probation, Rodman could face years behind bars.
Shortly after his arrest this month, it was announced that Rodman had checked himself into rehab. Though he checked out of the facility a week early, his attorney insisted Rodman is dedicated to receiving long-term treatment for his ongoing issues with alcohol abuse.
“He recognizes the problem and is working hard,” attorney Paul Meyer said, as reported by the Los Angeles Times. “No one questions his big heart and care for others. In recent months he completed his community service obligation by donating many hours in long-term care facilities and making a real difference in people's lives. I think the responsible way that Dennis is facing his current situation will be an inspiration to many others.”
