Jalen Rose Released from Jail After 16 Days


He did the crime and he did his time–former NBA star and ESPN analyst Jalen Rose was released from a Detroit jail this morning after spending 16 days in the slammer because of a DUI arrest back in March.

Rose, who still works for ESPN as an NBA analyst, was originally sentenced to 20 days in the pen after pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated during a March 11 crash.

TMZ broke the story –the 38-year-old ex-Fab Fiver was driving along an icy roadway in Michigan with a female passenger when he lost control of his vehicle, flipping the car.

After the judge basically threw the book at Rose, Jalen’s lawyer called the sentence “outrageous” … and an “abuse of discretion.”
