TMZ Sports obtained the police report from the Jan. 13 incident -- in which the Newport PD says Rodman was swerving all over the road around 10:50 PM. 

Once pulled over, cops say Rodman reeked of booze -- so he was arrested for DUI

According to the arrest report, Rodman is listed at 6'8" and 235 lbs (up from his listed playing weight of 228). He lists his occupation as "self-employed."

Breaking News

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane says he only blew a .03 before he was arrested for DUI in Washington this weekend -- and is now questioning why he was taken into custody in the first place. 

"A fail is a 0.08 right? I blew 0.03," Lane tweeted (and then deleted) ... "Why was still arrest? I'll leave it at that." He included an emoji of a dark-skinned person possibly alleging race was a factor. 

He continued to engage with fans who wanted to know more. 

One person asked why he agreed to take a breathalyzer at all -- he replied, "Either way you go you still to jail that makes you look guilty. I had nothing to hide so I did it."

Another person accused Lane of testing positive for weed. He replied, "Lol oh I took weed test now?"

As we previously reported, Lane was arrested for DUI early Sunday morning. Cops have still not released details about the incident. 

Seahawks' Jeremy Lane Arrested for DUI

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane was arrested for DUI over the weekend in Washington ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The 27-year-old former Super Bowl champ was arrested and later booked Sunday morning at 5:30 AM in the Seattle area. Bail was set at $1,000. 

He was released a short time later on his own recognizance, according to official records.  

Lane had a decent career with the Seahawks until he lost his starting job earlier this season. The team reportedly tried to ship him to Houston, but he failed his physical -- killing the deal. 

Lane's most famous moment is probably when he picked off Tom Brady in Super Bowl XLIX -- a game the Seahawks ultimately lost. 

Dennis Rodman Was On Probation During DUI Arrest ... Jail Likely

1/15/2018 6:38 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dennis Rodman's DUI problems have gone from bad to worse ... because he was on probation during his arrest on Saturday -- and it likely means he'll be thrown in the slammer.

The probation stems from a plea deal Rodman struck over a July 2016 wrong way crash -- where he was going the wrong way on an Orange County, CA freeway, struck a car and allegedly fled the scene. Witnesses also saw him drinking at a karaoke bar before the crash but he was not charged with DUI for that incident.

However, Rodman was placed on 3 years probation with the condition he stay out of trouble. It was a good deal for Rodman, considering he was facing up to 2 years in prison.

So, what happens next? Officials will likely revoke his probation in the wake of the new arrest and he could be sent to prison for the full 2 years he was originally due to serve in the wrong way crash case PLUS any additional time for the new arrest.

Rodman's rep has told TMZ Sports the NBA player needs rehab -- but it could be too little, too late.

Get this ... Lakers player Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is serving a 25-day jail sentence -- AND playing in the NBA at the same time. 

No, this is not a joke. 

24-year-old KCP was sentenced to 25 days after pleading guilty to violating his probation stemming from a DUI arrest in Michigan back in March.
