Former Kentucky basketball star Rex Chapman has been sentenced to probation and agreed to pay more than $15,000 to an Apple Store in Arizona and complete 750 hours of community service after pleading guilty in a shoplifting case, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported. Jerry Cobb, who is a spokesman for the Maricopa County (Arizona) Attorney’s Office, told the newspaper that Chapman pleaded guilty to four Class 6 felony charges (the lowest level felony offense) on Friday in Maricopa County Superior Court.
Former University of Kentucky and NBA basketball player Rex Chapman began a 28-day substance-abuse treatment program at The Brook Hospital in Louisville on Monday, a source with knowledge of the situation said. Chapman, who will be 47 Sunday, is determined to break a reliance on suboxone, a medication prescribed to help patients stop using opioid-based pain medication. Chapman suffered multiple knee, ankle and thumb injuries over his 12-season, 666-game NBA career. He never played an entire 82-game schedule and retired from the Phoenix Suns, his fourth pro team, in 2000.
