TMZ has obtained video of Jalen inside a cop car in Michigan on March 11 -- moments after he was tossed in the back for allegedy driving drunk. 

In the video, the following exchange takes place between Jalen and the cop:

Jalen: "So what are we doing right now?"
Cop: "We're gonna go to the police station right now."
Jalen: "To do what?"
Cop: "You're under arrest."
Jalen: "For what, sir?"
Cop: "For drunk driving."
Jalen: "But I wasn't really drinking."
Cop: "Um, okay."

Earlier today, officials released the police report -- which shows Rose's blood alcohol level was over the legal limit at the time of his arrest.

Uh oh. You're just saying it was over the legal limit but not saying exactly what it was. Does that mean he was .09 or something?

Chris Webber is loving Jalen's downfall now that he's got his job. Juwan Howard will take over if Chris ever gets a DUI.

Jalen was only demostrating his academic skills. Nice role model for his deprived people although he would be a hero if he was on drugs and was packing.
