Dennis Rodman had another brush with the law when he was arrested in Costa Mesa, Calif., for investigation of drunken driving.
Rodman, driving a Bentley, was stopped Wednesday night because his passenger was not wearing a seat belt, police Sgt. Bob Ciszek said.
"Also, the security in the area had reported he was possibly intoxicated as he was leaving a restaurant and bar," said police Sgt. Don Holford, adding that Rodman flunked the field sobriety test conducted by a special driving-under-the-influence team.
The 38-year-old former NBA rebounding champion posted $2,500 bond and was released.
A smiling Rodman spoke briefly with reporters as he left jail, saying he had a couple of beers. He had no criticism for officers who stopped him.
"They're doing their job," he said.
It marked the third time within four months that Rodman has been arrested. Charges were either dropped or never filed in the previous cases.
Rodman was waived by the Los Angeles Lakers last April after spending a rocky seven weeks with the team.
