ESPN Pulls Jalen Rose Off The Air Due To His Non-Disclsoure Of DUI Arrest

Evidently, it is not advisable to fail to report to your employer drunky arrests if you happen to work for in the No Secrets Zone of The Worldwide Leader In Sports, as it has been reported that NBA analyst Jalen Rose has been pulled off the air by ESPN for not informing his bosses that he was arrested for suspicion of DUI. In fact, the network was made privy to the news regarding Rose courtesy of a Detroit television station’s report on Rose’s run-in with the law nearly three weeks after his arrest on March 11, leaving the network with perceived egg on its face.

“Jalen has accepted full responsibility for his actions. Both parties are taking this very seriously, and as a result, we’ve agreed that he will not be on our air while he addresses this situation,” said ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz in an email to Game On!

There you go. Rose’s fate should prove to be a valuable lesson to all of the other ESPN personalities who run afoul of the law: don’t keep secrets from the cabal that is tWWL – it will only make things worse for you.
