Jalen Rose to serve 20 days for drunk driving conviction

Jul 27, 2011, 12:42 PM EDT

Jalen Rose played 13 NBA seasons and is now an NBA analyst for ESPN AP

Back in March, Jalen Rose was arrested for drinking and driving — then he got in more trouble with his employers at ESPN for not telling them about it — has been sentenced to 20 days in jail for the offense, according to Fox News in Detroit.

Rose crashed his SUV then when cops showed up to the crash he was tested for driving under the influence, according to reports. He told police he had six martinis that night, according to the Fox News report.

He will start serving the 20 days next Tuesday.

Rose was a member of Michigan’s Fab Five — he helped put together ESPN’s “30 for 30” documentary on the team — and had a 13-year NBA career, best remembered for his time in Indiana.

    What did the so called “Fab 5″ ever win. Nada

    So they made it to the Final game 2 years in a row.

    Hell, Butler just did that.

    They never won a Big 10 title either.

    They were probably Apple Martini’s anyway.

    20 days seems kind of harsh for first offense DWI
