Police arrest Rodman after report of dispute at hotel

LOS ANGELES -- Former NBA star Dennis Rodman was arrested for allegedly hitting a woman at a Century City hotel.

He was arrested Wednesday night after officers answered a report of a domestic dispute, police said. The woman sustained injuries to her arm, police added.

The 46-year-old former rebounding champion was jailed for investigation of felony domestic violence and freed on $50,000 bail early Thursday. His arraignment is scheduled for May 22.

Rodman manager Darren Prince told TMZ.com, a celebrity Web site, that his client grabbed the woman's arm -- leaving a bruise -- after the pair drank too much and argued. Prince said Rodman's drinking has escalated because of a divorce and he plans to enter rehab.
