Arrest Warrant Out For Derrick Rose’s Older Brother

CHICAGO (CBS) — While Derrick Rose leads the Bulls to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since the Michael Jordan days, his older brother, Allan Rose, is in big trouble.

A Cook County judge has issued an arrest warrant for Allan Rose, 26, after he failed to appear in court Tuesday – as his brother and the Bulls beat the Atlanta Hawks to take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

He was to be in court to face misdemeanor reckless conduct charges stemming from his arrest last month in the North Pullman neighborhood. Allan Rose attended the Bulls game at the United Center on Tuesday.

On April 2 at 12:49 a.m., police responded to a 911 call of a man with a gun at 901 E. 104th St., where they found Allan Rose standing in the street, blocking traffic and yelling profanities, according to court records. Allan Rose was arrested and charged with reckless conduct.

It wasn’t Allan Rose’s first arrest. In 2002, Allan Rose was charged with two counts of manufacturing and delivering cocaine near a school or park. He pleaded guilty to felony drug charges and received two years of probation, which he successfully completed in May 2005, court records show.

      Derrick Rose ,simply put, has a brother who has some psyche problems. Okay? So what is the big deal here? Hopefully, Derrick will find and pay for a strong rehab program. He’s only 26. There’s potential for change. This situation is called life.

  • why blog this ?

    is this TMZ ? who the f_ck cares…. idiots !!!!

    So you don’t think “delivering” cocaine where kids play and go to school is a big deal?! Then you guys are part of what’s wrong with this country today. Losers defending losers. What a disgrace.

    • StupidPeopleFTW

      Stop having your dealer meet you in a school zone next time Thomas, I told him you’d be fine meeting him at the adult bookstore that you frequent.

    Unfortunately the media is inclined to dig up stories to create negatives anytime there is a huge positive. It makes me sick, personally, but, as Bernstein would say, this is news whether we like it or not. The great thing about America is, you don’t have to read about it if you don’t care.

    The idiot is the person who takes the time to read it, and post about how much they don’t care, Mr. Why Blog This?. By the way, this isn’t a blog, but a news article. Tough to tell the difference then you’re… an idiot.

    In the Sports section, yes, this is irrelevant

    I hope this doesn’t become like a LeBron’s mother like distraction.

    DRose is a home body and family guy and I hope this doesn’t distract him from the Heat/basketball court. It may be nothing but is bad timing and a bad nuissance.

    Good… Good….

    Take the good with the bad, If you’re going to slobber all over Derrick’s Mom, You’re going to have to deal with Derrick’s brother too. Every family has a bad egg, You couldn’t expect Derrick’s family to be perfect could you?

    By the way, This is a story, As it relates to the family of the most popular sports athlete in town. Anybody who says this is a non-story is foolish.

      Hey, hey, hey, that sounds like logic, and it has no place here!

    Let’s focus on the Miami Heat!
