Well this time, I at least get to talk about him being arrested in Germany.
More from NBC Sports:
Former basketball star Dennis Rodman was temporarily detained in Germany for allegedly skipping out on a $5,100 hotel bill for a post-game party, a prosecution official said Monday.
Senior prosecutor Juergen Bauer said Monday that Rodman had played in a “USA Legends of Basketball” exhibition game in the western town of Trier and threw a party afterward at his hotel.
The prosecutor said the organizers of the game had agreed to pick up the tab for Rodman’s overnight stay at the hotel, but not an additional $5,100 for beverages consumed at the party.
When Rodman left the hotel Monday morning without paying the tab, the hotel director contacted the police, Bauer said. Police found Rodman’s stretch limo on the highway and detained the star.
Rodman then paid the outstanding bill along with an additional $2,500 to dismiss possible legal proceedings, the prosecutor said.
This story is pretty cut and dry but it is truly sad to see how Dennis Rodman has let celebrity eat him up. He was arguably one of the best defensive players of all time in the NBA and a player who had ability to just accumulate rebounds. Now to see him as a footnote in society, it just seems off. That’s Dennis being Dennis though and I got respect him for that.
Oh well, to lighten the mood, here is Germany’s favorite son David Hasselhoff singing “Looking for Freedom”
