Rodman, Kim Jong Un’s buddy, arrested for drunk-driving


Dennis Rodman, a five-time NBA champion and sometime buddy of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was released from jail on Sunday after being detained overnight on suspicion of drunk driving, police said.

Rodman, 56, was stopped at 11:11 pm Saturday for a vehicle violation, said Police Lieutenant Rachel Johnson in Newport Beach, California, south of Los Angeles.

TMZ reported that Rodman failed a field sobriety test and was taken to the station, where he failed an alcohol breathalyzer test as well.

Johnson said Rodman was cooperative with police and was released shortly after 6 am.

“Dennis is taking this seriously and will take positive steps to address his personal issues,” Rodman’s lawyer, Paul S. Meyer, said in a statement to the New York Daily News. “He appreciates the professionalism of the Newport Beach Police Department.”

Rodman, a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in 1999.
