Ex-NBA star charged with hit-and- run offence

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has been charged with a
hit-and-run offence that carries a maximum sentence of two
years in prison.

The 55-year-old is accused of driving the wrong way on a
southern California motorway, causing another car to swerve
and crash into a concrete wall.

Prosecutors claim Rodman then fled the scene of the crash on
20 July and gave police false information.

He has also been charged with driving without a valid licence.

Rodman's lawyer Paul Meyer, says the incident occurred on a
poorly signed exit ramp. He added that Rodman corrected the
driving error without the cars touching, stopped and spoke to
people in the other car.

The case is scheduled for 20 January.
