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 on Thursday the agency recommends Orange County prosecutors charge Rodman, 55, with felony hit-and-run and driving the wrong way on a freeway.
District attorney's spokeswoman Roxy Fyad told 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 Rodman's SUV, which was traveling north in a southbound lane.
After a brief conversation, Rodman left without exchanging information, the BMW driver said.
A voicemail seeking comment was left at a listing for Rodman's marketing agent.
Rodman, nicknamed "the Worm," is a two-time winner of the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award and made the NBA All-Defensive First Team seven times. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011.
