Jalen Rose starts 20-day county jail sentence

PONTIAC (AP) -- ESPN analyst and former NBA player Jalen Rose has reported to jail to begin a 20-day sentence for drunken driving.

Online records show Rose entered the Oakland County jail Tuesday, about a week after getting a stiff sentence from a judge who's known for tough punishments.

Rose crashed his sports utility vehicle in March in West Bloomfield Township after drinking six large martinis. The 38-year-old pleaded guilty in May.

After playing basketball at Michigan, Rose had a 13-year career in the NBA, including six seasons with the Indiana Pacers.
