A judge signed an arrest warrant Wednesday for U.S. basketball star Dennis Rodman after he missed a court appearance on two alleged traffic violations.
District Court Administrator Christine Yuhas said Rodman could be arrested if he returns to Colorado. Rodman was charged with speeding and reckless driving after he was stopped July 26 in a $250,000 (Ђ203,000) Lamborghini on a highway near the mountain town of Frisco, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) west of Denver. Officers allegedly clocked him going 98 mph (155 kph).
At the time, Rodman was participating in the 3,000-mile (4,800-kilometer) Bullrun USA 2005 charity auto rally. Rodman's sponsor for the event, GoldenPalace.com, had agreed to pay Rodman's tickets and legal bills to resolve the matter.
A $400 (Ђ325) check for going 69 mph (110 kph) in a 45-mph (72-kph) zone in Montrose County on July 25 was mailed Monday, but GoldenPalace.com was still resolving the Summit County tickets Wednesday.
During the auto rally, Rodman also was involved in a minor accident and accused of leaving a Glenwood Springs truck stop without paying $40 (Ђ32.5) for gasoline and a cap. A fan paid the former Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons star's bill, and authorities did not pursue charges, AP reports.
