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."

I see this as retribution for the Fab 5 do***entary.
I know it's not the south, but there are plenty of people who didn't like their brash hip hop attitude. Plus they were young, black, and awesome.
Once they saw that it was Jalen who crashed his car, they took advantage of the situation to persecute him.
Really? Arrest someone for lack of sobriety without results?

I guess he was cited and released. If it were me or you we would be cuffed and stuffed and thrown into jail. Why is justice so nice and civil to the rich and shameless, and so mean and violent to everyday joes? Like all reporting there seems to be a lack of details in this story. Did the police give jalen a ride home?

I hate Jalen but this judge is a huge B**ch. Commonly giving out 30 days in jail for first dui offenders that barely break the legal limit. I don't support drinking and driving, but having a few glasses of wine at dinner and driving home doesn't make you a bad person or deserving of 30 days in jail.
