LOS ANGELES -- A passenger in a car driven by Chicago Bulls guard Jalen Rose was shot in the face during a carjacking attempt early Tuesday.

Rose was not hurt. The passenger was hospitalized, but his injury was not life-threatening, police Officer Ed Funes said.

The pair, traveling in a new Bentley, were approached at about 3 a.m. in Brentwood by an armed man who demanded the car.

Rose sped away, but the suspect started firing, striking the 34-year-old passenger, Funes said.

Authorities withheld the passenger's name because the suspect is still at-large.

The 29-year-old Rose, a member of the "Fab Five'' at Michigan from 1991-94, left after his junior year to play in the NBA. He was traded from Indiana to Chicago in February.


Scary stuff!

The question is, once you steal Jalen Rose's Bentley, and shoot his passenger in the face... what do you do? You can't exactly drive the car around town and pick up chicks with it. You can't take an add out in Auto Trader for it. And exaclty how big is the black market for stripped down Bentley parts? If you stole it, there would probably be only one guy I can think of that would be looking to pick up a new Bently, and you just shot his passenger in the face.

This is all falling apart for Rose. The supposed car jacker was driven a 75 grand Escolade, now a Bentley is a big step up, but cone on....It is looking like Rose and his mystery companion may have some ( as Ricky says to Lucy )---SOME SPLAININ' to do...

It amazes me that these multi-millionaires continue to get into trouble....

A chop shop would go nuts for a Bentley.. Believe it or not, alot of mechanics get their parts from chop shops..
