Dennis Rodman Busted for Domestic Violence

5/1/2008 11:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman was arrested last night on suspicion of felony domestic battery.
Dennis Rodman
He was arrested at 11:00 PM at a Century City hotel and was released early this morning.

Law enforcement tells us they charge suspects with a felony if there is evidence of injury, such as bruising or blood.

Rodman was released on $50,000 bail today at 4:16 AM.

UPDATE: Rodman's manager Darren Prince tells TMZ, "Last night Dennis and his girlfriend had too much to drink. When they returned to their hotel they started arguing and a minor altercation broke out where Dennis grabbed her by the arm and left a bruise." Hotel security got involved and called LAPD, who responded and made the arrest. We're told Dennis plans to enter a rehab facility immediately upon returning to Florida because -- according to Prince -- "his drinking has been escalating in the last six weeks due to a nasty divorce and not seeing his children in over two months."

Smelly VaGina....the BUNNY BOILER.... is a lonely, psycho, master
manipulator at its best. Watch out World be wary of this kind!!!!!
The fact that she's trying to play the 'poor catalyst' for Rodman's
alcohol abuse...is HILARIOUS. It's amazing how God works right? Cause
he sent this lesson to you for a reason....or maybe he sent this
lesson to the world...using YOU as the CATALYST.....because YOU
DESERVE THE HUMILIATION!!!!!! You psycho...that's why you have the
reputation that you do....as a bunny boiler.....

He is proof that whatever abuse that has scarred him emtionally as a child has never left him and he is simply in a lot of pain. If it is true about his children those children are suffering as well as their father more emotional baggage.
