*Jalen Rose, who was in the news recently for his uncomplimentary statements about Duke University and Grant Hill, is back on the front burner, so to speak.

The former NBA star and current analyst for ESPN, was arrested back on March 11 in Michigan. He was charged with driving under the influence (along an icy roadway) when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed.

Reports say that Rose, 38, was in his hometown of Detroit for the opening of the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy … a charter school designed to provide under-privileged youth with college prep experience when the incident happened.

Keith Davidson, a Los Angeles-based attorney who represents Rose, told the AP the former player and his legal team “look forward to working with Michigan authorities and addressing any and all outstanding issues in court and not in the press.”

Rose played 13 years in the NBA and was also part of Michigan’s famous Fab Five, which reached the NCAA title game in 1992 and 1993.
