Derrick Rose passenger in car stopped for DUI

If it's a late night arrest story in the NBA, you know TMZ has it. This time it's Derrick Rose who was a passenger, but not involved in a DUI arrest late Thursday night/Friday morning: 
Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose strolled out of an LAPD station at 3:00 AM today ... after his BFF was arrested for DUI ... and Derrick was a passenger in the car.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ .... the 2011 NBA MVP was a passenger in a black BMW being driven by his close friend and personal assistant Randall Hampton ... when cops stopped the car on a routine traffic violation at around 2:00 AM Friday morning.

When cops spoke to Hampton -- who played junior college basketball with Rose in Texas -- officers claim they detected the odor of alcohol.

Hampton was given a field sobriety test ... and was eventually arrested on suspicion of DUI. Rose was free to go.

It says a lot that my first thought was relief for Rose. "Oh, Rose was only a passenger in a car driven by someone legally intoxicated, he wasn't arrested."  Wait, that's not good, either. No word on whether Rose was intoxicated, but if he wasn't, why wouldn't he drive? But then, you know, that would actually make sense. 

Rose was never in custody so for the moment this is largely a non-story, but something of note for those keeping tabs on the MVP.  Gotta wonder how Thibs is going to take it when he hears.

There is more to this story than we are being told.  Why was Rose not driving???  He was probably too liquored up.  So, his friend, personal assistant, whatever, took the chance at getting pulled over because he knows D Rose will pay him accordingly.

The only way I would lose any respect for Derrick Rose after reading this story is if he actually referred to the driver as his BFF.   Time for another Miller Lite Man Up commercial if that's true.

CBSsports, has, yet again STOOPED to the low levels of ESPN.  THIS IS NOT SPORTS NEWS!  SHAME ON YOU CBS.  This is sad and not worthy.  Ultimately, anytime CBSsports cites TMZ as their source, it is not a sports story and borderline newsworthy.

Shame on you CBS sports.
