ESPN's Rose Pleads Guilty to Drunk Driving

ESPN basketball analyst Jalen Rose pleaded guilty to drunk driving today, admitting to the judge that he drank six martinis on the night of March 11 before he veered off a snowy road in Michigan and rolled his Cadillac Escalade. When police arrived, Rose insisted he hadn’t been drinking, but roadside and hospital tests proved Rose’s blood-alcohol was above the legal limit. He came clean to the judge on Tuesday.

“I’m embarrassed to say I had six drinks that evening,” Rose said softly.

When the judge asked how large the drinks were, Rose replied: “I’m embarrassed to say probably too big.”

He faces up to 93 days in jail, a $500 fine and court costs when he’s sentenced July 27.
