Statement by Jalen Rose re: March 11 Vehicle Accident

Mar 30, 2011, 17:01 ET from Jalen Rose

DETROIT, March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- "On March 11th, I was driving to my home when I was involved in a single vehicle automobile accident.  I voluntarily submitted to blood alcohol screening because I was confident it was safe for me to drive. 

Although I was not feeling impaired, the results of these tests indicate that my blood alcohol level was above the legal limit.  I regret the decision to drive home that evening and am grateful that no one was hurt in the accident.  I apologize to my family, my employer and each and every one of my supporters for my lapse in judgment.  I am particularly sorry for disappointing those who trust me to serve as a role model for young people.

I accept full responsibility for my actions and look forward to a resolution of the legal matter as soon as possible."
