But the ESPN analyst acknowledges in a statement Wednesday that tests showed his blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit for driving after he crashed his vehicle March 11 in West Bloomfield Township, a Detroit suburb.
No one was injured in the single-vehicle accident. Rose was arrested after the crash.
The 38-year-old basketball analyst for ESPN played in the NBA for 13 years, reaching the finals with Indiana in 2000. He also was part of Michigan’s famous Fab Five, which reached the NCAA title game in 1992 and 1993.
Rose produced a recent ESPN documentary on the Fab Five.
