Former NBA star Dennis Rodman was arrested on suspicion of DUI during a traffic stop in Southern California late Saturday night

According to Lt. Rachel Johnson of the Newport Beach Police Department, officers stopped Dennis Rodman around 11 p.m.for a traffic infraction.

Johnson says Rodman was given a field sobriety test, which he failed.

The L.A. Times reported that Rodman agreed to submit to a Breathalyzer test and blew over the .08 legal limit.

The eccentric former NBA legend was taken into custody and later released Sunday morning.

Johnson said Rodman was cooperative with officers. It wasn’t immediately known if Rodman had an attorney.

Rodman’s representatives have yet to comment on the arrest.

He made international headlines in recent years through his friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Dennis Rodman visited North Korea four times in the past four years where he met personally with the dictator and described him as a “friend for life.”
