Jalen admits when he wrecked his car on March 11 ... he "voluntarily submitted to blood alcohol screening because I was confident it was safe for me to drive."

TMZ broke the story -- the ESPN hoops analyst and former NBA star crashed while driving on an icy road in Michigan.  After completing several field sobriety tests he was arrested for DUI.

Jalen says he regrets the decision to drive home -- and is "sorry for disappointing those who trust me to serve as a role model."

Not condoning drunk driving, but he did complete several field sobriety tests. Completed means passed, but offered to take the test anyway. Looks like he shot himself in the foot.

The yet unanswered question is, did Chris Webber jump out of the vehicle and try to call a timeout he didn't have?

This is one of many reasons coach K did not recruit you. Your flawed..plain and simply. I bet you'll never see Grant Hill in the news for getting a DUI. Completly differnt classs. What a loser.
