No one likes to be the punchline of a joke. Sometimes it makes someone want to punch back. Jack Kayajanian, whose law firm is based in Costa Mesa, did not appreciate the joke I made him out to be as part of my column on Dennis Rodman and his child-support case last week. Jack defended himself, defended his stance and took exception to some of the things I wrote. He's the lawyer for Michelle Rodman, Dennis' third wife. Michelle, who has two children from Dennis, lives in Costa Mesa.

Sue Doyle NEWPORT BEACH -- Dennis Rodman pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of drunk driving in exchange for a sentence of three years of informal probation and a three-month alcohol treatment program. The flamboyant basketball star, who did not appear in court, also pleaded guilty to driving without a valid driver's license. As a part of his sentence, Rodman, 39, must pay $2,000 in fees and observe a 90-day restriction on his driver's license, allowing him only to drive to and from work and the treatment program.

A woman who alleged former NBA star and part-time Newport Beach resident Dennis Rodman spanked her in a Dana Point bar has declined to move forward with the case and has refused to press charges, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said Friday. The woman, whose name has not been released, filed a sexual battery complaint against Rodman Sept. 16. She alleged Rodman slapped her on the buttocks at Hennessey’s Tavern in Dana Point. The woman dropped her complaint against Rodman earlier this week, said Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

In the Pilot's first-ever Last Word (OK, we're going by memory here, because our computer system doesn't show the article and the move to our new office has us a bit discombobulated), we pushed for an NBA trade. We wanted to send Dennis Rodman, then Newport Beach's bad boy extraordinaire, to Coto de Caza in exchange for Kobe Bryant, who then was thinking about moving to the Orange County gated community. (Yes, given the circus that's since dropped in Bryant's lap, maybe that wasn't the best trade after all.)

COSTA MESA Rodman gets ready to hit the boards Dennis Rodman announced on Tuesday that he has signed a contract to play for the Orange County Crush, a new American Basketball Assn. team based at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa. The team will make its debut on Sunday against the Long Beach Jam in Long Beach and play its home games in a tent on the Speedway track at the fairgrounds. Rodman said he will use this opportunity to make a comeback into the NBA. The ace rebounder, who won five NBA championships with the Detroit Pistons and the Chicago Bulls, left the league in March 2000, when he was released by the Dallas Mavericks after less than a month with the team.

We're going to strike a slightly different tune here. Dennis Rodman, NBA bad boy turned Newport Beach bad boy during the past few years, has sold his beachfront West Newport digs and is planning to move to a more family-friendly home in Newport Coast or Shady Canyon. And rather than bid him a fond, quick farewell with a loud "and don't come back!," we're going to go with this: Word is Rodman's trying to clean up his act. He wants to play basketball again.

Dennis Rodman's arraignment on two criminal misdemeanor charges was continued again on Wednesday until Aug. 29. The Orange County district attorney filed the charges against the former NBA star for allegedly using sound amplifiers without city permits at his Newport Beach home. According to prosecutors, Rodman "disturbed the peace" in his Seashore Drive neighborhood on May 12, when he hosted a party on the beach to celebrate his 40th birthday. Police said about 300 people came to the party, which featured famous live bands playing on the beach.

The prospects are tantalizing. An atmosphere that would fit perfectly on Temptation Island. Leopard skin and red velvet sofas, pulsating music, all with a bayfront view. Whether they will be appetizing, is another thing entirely. In the next few weeks, Newport-Mesa residents will be able to decide for themselves if the "nouveau Latino cuisine" to be offered by the renovated Josh Slocums excites the palate, and whether they feel like supporting the establishment's new partner.
