Detained by Ze Germans

over Booze Bill

11/16/2009 4:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1116_rodman_reg_tmz-1Cops in Germany had to temporarily detain Dennis Rodman today after the former basketball star allegedly bailed on a huge alcohol tab ... but according to the Worm, it's all bull-schnitzle.

It all went down in the city of Trier, where Rodman had been staying to play in a series of "USA Legends of Basketball" exhibition games.

"The Worm" recently charged a $5,100 alcohol tab to his hotel room and thought the hotel would cover the bill ... he was wrong.

After Rodman left the hotel today, cops pulled his limo over and detained him. Rodman ended up paying the tab plus an additional fee to avoid any legal trouble.

Rodman's agent, Darren Prince, says they will dispute the over $7,000 charge made on Rodman's card because reps from the event told them "incidentals would be taken care of."

UPDATE: Rodman's manager, who was with him at the time, says Rodman was simply attending a party at the hotel and doesn't know why he's being forced to pay for it. We're told Rodman first learned of the massive tab when his limo was pulled over.

You gotta laugh at someone that considers a $5,100 liquor bill an 'incedental'.

I thought he checked himself into rehab after celebrity apprentice outed him over his excessive drinking and acting a fool. He is a little old to be still partying and binge drinking. David Hasselhoff and Dennis Rodman are hardcore alcoholics...So Pathetic why would anyone who is a celebrity do this to themselves. The people who manage them need to quit babying them and get them stone cold sober and not even drink one single drop of alchol...........

He may seem like a jerk. But back when he played for the Pistons, a friend of mine did the cable install at his house in Bloomfield Hills as a party was going on. Once he was done Rodman invited him to stay and have a few. Needless to say, he ended up staying there for hours partying with a few celebs and most of the Piston Bad Boys.
