Photo credit: GettyThe California Highway Patrol has recommended that former NBA player, Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman face charges in a freeway incident, JapanTimes reported citing AP.

However, the former “rebound king” denied the incident took place.

“Guess what? Nothing happened, there was no wreck, there was no injuries, there was no nothing, so I guess it’s going on hearsay,” said Rodman.

Officer Florentino Olivera told The Orange County Register the agency recommends Orange County prosecutors charge Rodman with felony hit-and-run and driving the wrong way on a freeway.

The incident allegedly occurred at 12:30 a.m. July 20 on Interstate 5 in Santa Ana.

Rodman played for Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, LA Lakers and Dallas Mavericks. He was a two-time All-Star, and playing in 911 career NBA games, averaged 7.3 points and 13.1 rebounds per game.

He won two NBA rings as member of the Detroit Pistons in 89 and 90, and later won three more rings with the Chicago Bulls in 96, 97 and 98. In 2011 Rodman got inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
