It’s been a little while since anyone heard from Dennis Rodman. This latest bit of news isn’t exactly encouraging.

TMZ is reporting Rodman was caught driving under the influence on Saturday night in Newport Beach, California. Rodman apparently failed a field sobriety test and was jailed for several hours until he was able to sober up.

Rodman has a history with substance abuse. The former NBA star was arrested for a DUI back in 1999 and again in 2004.

In more recent years, Rodman has become more of a caricature of himself than anything else. Between Rodman’s trips to North Korea and various legal troubles, there have been plenty of obscure business ventures and wild statements.

Rodman last played professional basketball in 2006 and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011.
