Jalen Rose Pulled Off Air For DUI ‘Concealment’

by April 01, 2011

If Jalen Rose’s DUI arrest didn’t already look bad, things got worse when a Detroit TV station, not ESPN, broke the news earlier this week. Rose was cited for a DUI in early March and neglected to tell anyone at ESPN about the incident. ESPN has not officially fired or suspended Rose, but he has been taken off the air for the time being. From USA Today: “ESPN is pulling Jalen Rose off the air after a report found the NBA basketball analyst waited almost three weeks to tell his employers about his arrest in Michigan on suspicion of drunk driving. “Jalen has accepted full responsibility for his actions. Both parties are taking this very seriously, and as a result, we’ve agreed that he will not be on our air while he addresses this situation,” said ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz in an email to Game On!”
