Gapers Block

Was it just a few short years ago that Dennis Rodman's hair was the talk of the nation (and causing gapers blocks on the Kennedy)? The former Bulls star, after trying his hand at such dangerous activities as World Championship Wrestling and co-starring in a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie, was competing in a cross-country auto race in July, when he was pulled over in Frisco, Colorado for speeding (98 mph!). Well, he missed his court date and now there's a warrant out for his arrest.

Court Administrator Christine Yuhas said they're not going to actively look for Rodman, but "if he shows up again in Colorado, we'll pick him up." I have nothing else to add at this time, except to link to this hilarious anecdote in the Chicago Reader archives, about the time Rodman gave his Bulls jersey to Billy Corgan.
