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."

Voluntary roadside tests followed by chemical testing? Pretty detailed stuff taking place here. Few dare to tell it as they see it, pretty brave fellow. Hopefully he finds a positive way out of this in spite of his recent statements that appears to have angered many. Can you picture someone getting a DUI for driving a wagon 60 years ago? We have come a long ways.

Kind of explains why DUKE University would NEVER recruit losers like this bum, doesn't it? Detroit, such a beautiful city full of jerks like this. Laughing :-)

He wasn't charged with DUI. He was charged with DWB!

Thank you, but I'll wait for the blood alcohol results to come back before I judge, unlike some douche bags like "John Rossi" (see Mr. Rossi's comment for the full flavor of what I'm talking about). Black men in nice automobiles get stopped for illegal reasons all the time. It's called "Driving While Black."

Assuming Jalen was driving under the influence, then I'm disappointed and glad no one was injured. That, however, does not negate all the good work Jalen's done for underprivileged children through his charter school. He, unlike Mr. Rossi, has put his money where his mouth is.

If Jalen is having a problem with alcohol, I hope he gets the help he needs.

I guess you missed the part of him(CRASHING HIS CAR!) but of cource it is always CAUSE HE IS BLACK!!! we all know the black race is a target and because half of the prison population is BLACK they are there because they are innocent, just ask AL Sharpton and J, Jackson. POOR BLACK PEOPLE all they does is make babies suck off welfare and overcrowd prisons,sell drugs steal, but it seems they get blamed for everything. If it werent for WHITEY I would get a job and support all those kids, DAMN WHITE MAN always bringing me down.

Well, I wonder what Grant Hill and all the other "Uncle Tom's" from Duke are doing while you are driving impared. Let me see I forgot how many NCAA Championships the Wolverines won with their professional team. Would that be zero? Yes it would.
