Derrick Rose is currently in a civil case against a “Jane Doe” who claims that the NBA Point Guard and his two friends (Randall Hampton and Ryan Allen) gang raped her while she was asleep and unconscious in her own apartment. The case has been highly publicized from the beginning, but recently Rose has told the media that he hasn’t been worried about the lawsuit at all. He’s confident that his defense will win out.
So confident, in fact, that Derrick Rose didn’t even show up to his own trial on time. At the time this sentence was written (12:57 PM EST), Rose was about to be an hour late in court.
Where is Derrick Rose?
Someone should tell him it doesn’t look good if you don’t bother to show up to your own trial.#DoevRose

According to witnesses statements, a silver limo pulled up to the courthouse, but once they saw the TV crews they peeled out and didn’t return. Most people believe that Derrick Rose was in the limo.
I hear a silver limo pulled up to LA courthouse, took one look at TV crews and pulled off. Jurors told D Rose expected today #DoevRose
