Rodman, a Hall of Fame inductee who is perhaps best known for his role on several championship-winning Chicago Bulls teams in the 1990s, also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of driving without a valid license, according to the Orange County district attorney’s office.

A judge sentenced Rodman, 55, to three years of informal probation and 30 hours of community service; he was ordered to pay restitution as well as make a $500 donation to a victim emergency fund.

As part of the plea deal, a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge was dismissed.
