Former NBA player Jalen Rose faces sentencing in Michigan for drunken driving crash
BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (AP) ' Former NBA guard Jalen Rose is due in a Michigan courtroom to be sentenced for a drunken driving crash along a snowy suburban Detroit road in March.
Rose pleaded guilty to drunken driving and faces up to 93 days in jail and a $500 fine when he's sentenced Wednesday in Bloomfield Hills District Court.
The former University of Michigan star told a judge in May that he had six martinis the night he veered off the West Bloomfield Township road.
Authorities say Rose had an 0.088 percent blood-alcohol content, above Michigan's legal driving limit of 0.08 percent. A hospital test showed his blood-alcohol content as 0.12 percent.
Rose played for six teams during his 13-year NBA career. He is now an NBA analyst for ESPN.
