The Sports Kings: Jalen Rose Now A Free Man!

ESPN analyst and former NBA player Jalen Rose has been released from a suburban Detroit jail after serving time for drunken driving.

The Oakland County sheriff’s department tells The Associated Press that Rose was released early Thursday from the jail in Pontiac after 16 days behind bars. He reported to jail Aug. 2 to begin a 20-day sentence from a judge who’s known for tough punishments.

An email seeking comment was sent early Thursday to a lawyer for Rose.

Rose crashed his sports utility vehicle in March in West Bloomfield Township after drinking six large martinis. The 38-year-old pleaded guilty in May.

After playing basketball at Michigan, Rose had a 13-year career in the NBA, including six seasons with the Indiana Pacers.
