Former NBA charged kept by police after hotel said he didn't pay $5,100 bill

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has been temporarily detained in Germany after a hotel said he skipped out on a $5,100 (all currency U.S.) bill.

Senior prosecutor Juergen Bauer said Monday that Rodman had played in a “USA Legends of Basketball” exhibition game in the western town of Trier and threw a party afterward at his hotel.

Bauer says the game's organizers had agreed to pick up the tab for Rodman's overnight hotel stay, but not an additional $5,100 for beverages consumed at the party.

When Rodman left the hotel Monday morning without paying the tab, the hotel director contacted the police. Police found Rodman's stretch limo on the highway and detained the star.

Bauer says Rodman then paid the outstanding bill along with an additional $2,500 to dismiss possible legal proceedings.

The event promoter probably told Rodman he'd pay for everything, but obviously his tune changed when he saw the $5,100 tab.

Sounds to me like there was a misunderstanding somewhere. Besides this is pretty dumb that it's even news for the fact he paid it right away along with an additional $2500 for the inconvenience.
