Hours after he was sentenced to 20 days in jail for a drunken-driving conviction, ESPN analyst and retired NBA player Jalen Rose was ticketed for speeding in Clawson, Mich., a Detroit suburb.

Just before 9 p.m., Rose was clocked driving at 46 mph in a 25-mph zone. He was ticketed for being only 10 mph over.

Earlier, he had been sentenced in connection with a March accident in which he rolled his SUV on a snowy road and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.12. The limit in Michigan is 0.08.

“I'm humbled, I'm embarrassed, and I'm very apologetic," Rose said about a half-hour after receiving a 92-day sentence (reduced to 72) and one-year probation. “I can assure everyone that nothing like this will ever happen again.”

He begins serving his sentence in the Oakland County Jail on Aug. 2.
