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.
