New details have emerged about what happened moments before former Michigan and NBA player Jalen Rose was arrested for drunk driving last month.

The “Fab Five” alum performed poorly on tests to determine if he was drunk after rolling his Cadillac Escalade on a snowy Michigan road on March 11, writes the Associated Press, which obtained a copy of the police report from the West Bloomfield Township police. The report states Rose had trouble following movement with his eyes, maintaining his balance and couldn’t hold his foot off the ground for 30 seconds.

The report also says Rose told police he didn't drink alcohol that night, but two hours after the crash his blood-alcohol level was 0.088 percent. Michigan's legal limit is 0.08.

The NBA analyst for ESPN didn’t tell his employers about the drunk driving arrest for three weeks and was subsequently suspended when the news came out.
