Troopers recommend Dennis Rodman be charged with hit-and-run

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — The California Highway Patrol says former basketball player Dennis Rodman should face charges in a freeway crash.

Officer Florentino Olivera told The Orange County Register ( on Thursday the agency recommends Orange County prosecutors charge Rodman with felony hit-and-run and driving the wrong way on a freeway.

District attorney’s spokeswoman Roxy Fyad tells The Associated Press the matter is under review.
