If you’re curious what former college and NBA star was drinking on the night of his arrest:

"He told a judge in May that he had six martinis the night he veered off the West Bloomfield Township road."

No hard liquor? [Ed. Yes, I know what’s in a martini. Can’t remember the last time I saw an athlete drinking one in public Usually, it’s beer. Or shots.] Disappointing. I called ESPN for comment and they’re putting together some kind of statement. But ESPN was aware of today’s sentencing, and no extra punishment is expected.

[UPDATE: ESPN Statement on Rose’s impending incarceration – “The incident was regrettable and we’ve dealt with it internally. Jalen has expressed remorse and we all are looking forward to putting this behind us.”]
