Jalen Rose -- Arrested for DUI

3/29/2011 7:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Basketball stud Jalen Rose -- a member of the legendary "Fab Five" squad -- was arrested for driving under the influence in Michigan earlier this month ... TMZ has learned.

Jalen Rose Arrested

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the 38-year-old former NBA star was driving along an icy roadway on March 11 when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed.

Cops were called to the scene and Rose agreed to undergo several voluntary roadside sobriety tests. He was later transported to a nearby facility for chemical testing ... those results have not yet been returned. Rose was eventually arrested for driving under the influence.

We're told Rose was in his hometown of Detroit in preparation for the opening of the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy ... a charter school designed to provide under-privileged youth with college prep experience.

TMZ spoke with Rose's L.A.-based attorney, Keith Davidson, who told us, "We look forward to working with the authorities in Michigan and addressing these matters in court, not in the press. We have no comment at this time."

Do celebrities in Michigan get off like they do in California? They convicted Mel Gibson of a DUI--he plead "no contest"--and then they expunged his arrest from his record because he went for some classes and kept the peace for 3 years. What a joke! I wonder if the legal system in Michigan pulls the same kind of jokes on their residents there. Of course, Mel Gibson didn't stay clean, and got convicted again for assault.
