Cops also claim the notorious sportsman, who dated Madonna and was briefly married to Carmen Electra, was caught driving without a valid license after he was pulled over for driving his Range Rover the wrong way on a freeway near Santa Ana, California earlier this year (Jul16).

He has been charged with four misdemeanours: causing a hit-and-run accident with property damage, driving across a highway divider, giving false information to police and driving without a valid license. He faces up to two years behind bars if convicted. Rodman will be arraigned in January (17).

His actions forced the driver of a sedan to steer his car into a concrete barrier to avoid a collision with Rodman's vehicle, according to the California Highway Patrol.
