LOS ANGELES – Prosecutors in Los Angeles have charged former NBA star Dennis Rodman with domestic violence for allegedly hitting his girlfriend at a hotel last month.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney says Rodman was charged Wednesday with spousal battery, brandishing a deadly weapon and dissuading a witness. The charges are misdemeanors.
Rodman, who's 46, was arrested April 30 after Gina Peterson called hotel security. Police say she suffered injuries to her arm.
A spokesman for Rodman says he had had too much to drink when he got into an altercation with Peterson and says the couple are still dating.
Rodman's attorney says, quote, "We look forward to a successful resolution of this misdemeanor matter."
