Reports: Jalen Rose Failed Several Tests Before His Arrest

COREY WILLIAMS,Associated Press

DETROIT (AP) -- Former Michigan and NBA player Jalen Rose told authorities he hadn't been drinking and performed poorly on several tests to determine if he was intoxicated after rolling his Cadillac Escalade on a snowy Michigan road, according to a police report.

The report from the West Bloomfield Township police, obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press through a Freedom of Information request, also said Rose registered a 0.088 blood-alcohol level two hours after the March 11 crash. Michigan's legal limit is 0.08.

Rose, 38, was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

He was driving the 2004 SUV along Walnut Lake Road when it veered off the roadway about 2:10 a.m. and rolled over just east of Middlebelt, about 20 miles northwest of Detroit. Neither Rose nor his female passenger was hurt in the crash.
