Dennis Rodman, an NBA Hall of Famer, scored a no-jail plea deal on Monday in a case that was yet unresolved after he had served in a rehab institution for quite some time. After a fair trial, the Hall of Famer inductee pleaded guilty in an account of having driven under the heavy influence of alcohol. In another incident, Dennis was arrested for driving his vehicle with an excess blood alcohol level of around 0.08%. The celebrity was later sentenced to a nine-month period of an intense alcohol education program. Inclusive was also three-year informal probation and was ordered by the court of justice to pay a fine of $390.

According to Rodman’s lawyer Paul Meyer, the judge made the right ruling. He said that the court was considerate of the fact that Dennis was so committed to the rehabilitation treatment and that he had fully welcomed the responsibility for his sobriety and as far as he was concerned, Dennis was making significant progress. Dennis Rodman, who is currently 56 years old, was arrested on January 13th after the police pulled him over for a traffic felony he had committed in Newport. The police later conducted a sobriety test which he failed. The all-time NBA champ had won five NBA titles. He scooped two medals with Detroit Pistons in the years 1989 and 1990.He managed to win the remaining three with Chicago Bulls in the years 1996, 1997 and 1998.

The cops reported that they submitted Dennis to a Breathalyzer and asked him to blow severally up to over 0.08 legal limit. According to Dennis’s agent and a very longtime friend, immediately the NBA Hall of Famer was freed, he decided to join the rehab institution. Darren Prince reported that Dennis was undergoing complicated personal issues in the past month. The last two months were hell for him, but he had finally found the opportunity to shut whatever was bothering him down.

Prince advised him to place himself in a rehab center where there is close monitoring by very caring officials. That way, he would be able to figure out why everything was happening and finally draw out answers. At the time of arrest, Dennis was already on probation for having driven his range rover on the wrong side of the road. The incidence transpired in a carpool lane in southern California. The police reported that he was allegedly driving head on towards another oncoming vehicle before he swerved off and crashed into a wall. When presented in court, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three-year probation and 30 hours of community service.
