Rodman Settles Speeding Ticket
Former basketball star Dennis Rodman has finally settled a July (05) speeding ticket, which briefly led to a Colorado judge issuing a warrant for his arrest.
Rodman, who faced a speeding and reckless driving charge, agreed to plead guilty to speeding, pay $516.50 (GBP286) in fines and make a $200 (GBP110) donation to the Summit County 4-H club.
The sportsman's agent DARREN PRINCE says, "They had settled it absolutely."
Rodman was charged with speeding and reckless driving after he was stopped in a Lamborghini on a highway near the mountain town of Frisco on 26 July.
Summit County Judge RUSSELL GRANGER issued an arrest warrant after Rodman failed to appear at a 14 September (05) hearing.
Rodman had been in town to race in the Bullrun USA 2005 charity auto rally. During the rally, Rodman also was involved in a minor accident and was accused of leaving a truck stop without paying $40 (GBP22) for gasoline and a cap.
A fan paid the former Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons star's bill, and authorities did not pursue charges.
