Rodman Charged with Offense

The Worm has once again found himself tangled in quite a mess. The former rebounding and defensive clown-prince of the NBA, Dennis Rodman was charged with offense, more specifically Domestic Violence on Friday. The former NBA champ allegedly hit his girlfriend at a hotel last month bringing on the charges. On Wednesday, his charges included spousal battery, brandishing a deadly weapon, and one count of dissuading a witness. The charges were all misdemeanors.

The 46-year-old was arrested at a hotel April 30 after Gina Peterson called hotel security. Police say she suffered injuries to her arm.

Rodman spokesman Darren Prince says Rodman had had too much to drink when he got into an altercation with Peterson. Prince says the couple are still dating.

"We look forward to a successful resolution of this misdemeanor matter," said Rodman's attorney, Paul Meyer.

Attempts to find a phone listing for Peterson were not successful.

Rodman was part of championship teams with the Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons.
