Dennis Rodman was arrested for driving under the influence during the late hours of Saturday, January 13, in Newport Beach, California, local authorities confirm to Us Weekly. Rodman was on probation during the time of the arrest.

According to officials, the former basketball pro, 56, spent the night in jail after failing a breathalyzer test. He was released on the morning of Sunday, January 14.

Rodman has been on a three-year probation since July 2016, when he was arrested for causing a car accident while driving on the wrong side of there freeway in Orange County. TMZ reported that witnesses saw the five-time NBA championship winner drinking at a karaoke bar before the crash, but he was not charged with a DUI. Instead, Rodman, who was facing at least two years behind bars, was placed under probation with the condition that he stay out of legal trouble.

As previously reported, the Double Team actor checked himself into an undisclosed alcohol rehabilitation center prior to that back in January 2014 after taking a trip to North Korea to publicly apologize for comments he had previously made about a detained American missionary while intoxicated.

“Dennis Rodman came back from North Korea in a pretty rough shape emotionally,” the athlete’s former rep Darren Prince told USA Today at the time, following his return to America. “The pressure that was put on him to be a combination ‘super human’ political figure and ‘fixer’ got the better of him. He is embarrassed, saddened and remorseful for the anger and hurt his words have caused.”

Us Weekly has reached out to Rodman’s rep for comment.
