(CBS/AP) DETROIT - While former NBA player and Michigan Fab Five standout Jalen Rose says he wasn't "feeling impaired" when he was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving earlier this month near Detroit, he admits his blood-alcohol level tells a different story.

Rose acknowledged in a statement Wednesday that tests showed his blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit after he crashed his vehicle March 11 in a Detroit suburb.

No one was injured in the single car accident, but the ESPN analyst was arrested after the crash.

Rose, 38, played in the NBA for 13 years, reaching the finals with Indiana in 2000. He also was part of Michigan's famous Fab Five, which reached the NCAA title game in 1992 and 1993.
