SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) – The California Highway Patrol says former basketball player Dennis Rodman should face charges in a freeway crash.

Officer Florentino Olivera told The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/2aTIN8W) on Thursday the agency recommends Orange County prosecutors charge Rodman with felony hit-and-run and driving the wrong way on a freeway.

District attorney’s spokeswoman Roxy Fyad tells The Associated Press the matter is under review.

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

According to the California Highway Patrol, a BMW driver reported striking the center divider after swerving to avoid a head-on collision with an SUV traveling north in a southbound lane. The BMW driver said that after a brief conversation, Rodman left without exchanging information.

A voicemail seeking comment was left at a listing for Rodman’s marketing agent.
