Basketball star Dennis Rodman has been put under heavy restriction on the road, after pleading no contest to drunken driving charge.

Rodman, 42, wasn't required to appear for yesterday's (19APR04) plea in LAS VEGAS MUNICIPAL COURT. His lawyer, KAREN WINCKLER, entered the plea on his behalf.

A judge fined Rodman $1,000 (GBP550), ordered him to serve 30 days of home detention, and required him to use a device in Nevada which will measure his blood-alcohol content before he can start his car for the next year - to prevent him from driving after drinking alcohol.

Rodman was treated for minor injuries and released after he crashed a motorcycle on 19 October (04) while doing stunts outside a Las Vegas strip club.
