When confronted to put his mask on, the former Chicago Bulls basketball star would allegedly comply, but then pull it down and claim he was having trouble breathing.

The JetBlue attendants reportedly had to tell him to put his mask back on several times due to the federal mask mandate, which all airlines must enforce. After Rodman refused to comply, the authorities were called.

Upon landing in Fort Lauderdale, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office was reportedly waiting for the 60-year-old former athlete and spoke to him about the incident.

According to the law enforcement sources, Rodman was apparently cooperative when speaking with the cops. He was ultimately allowed to leave without being cited or charged.

This isn’t the first time he has found himself in hot water with the law.

As Radar reported a few months ago, Rodman was served legal papers by the IRS over an alleged tax debt worth upwards of $500,000.

The documents obtained by Radar in August claim the former pro basketball star owes $497,624.32 for multiple years.

The breakdown of the debt is $26,950.06 (2016), $392,043.02 (2017) and $78,631.24 (2018). Most of the debt came from the year he visited North Korea. The total amount owed on the two liens comes to a grand total of $500,966.65.

As the unofficial US Peace Ambassador to North Korea, it is no surprise that the year he was in North Korea is where most of his debt came from. After all, 2017 was a busy year for Rodman with his trip to see his longtime friend Kim Jong Un. It appears he made a ton of money from various deals during and after his appearance.

So far, neither Rodman nor JetBlue have made a statement regarding the mask incident this morning.
