Former basketball player
Dennis Rodman has been arrested in California for alleged public
intoxication.

Sergeant Jim Kaminsky of the Newport Beach police says a bar
owner called officers yesterday evening. When they arrived, the
owner told police Rodman was intoxicated and causing a disturbance.

They asked Rodman to step outside and put him under arrest, then
took him to the city jail and booked him on the misdemeanor charge.
Rodman was released on his own recognizance.

If the district attorney decides to file charges, Rodman will
have to appear in court October 1st.

The 38-year-old Rodman is a former Southeastern Oklahoma
standout. He played for the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls
before joining the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers waived him in
April.
