Dennis Rodman must fork over a six-figure fine to a Las Vegas waitress he touched inappropriately in a 2006 incident, TMZ reports. The 28-year-old “beverage manager” said the former basketball star was incredibly intoxicated when he slapped her rear and tried to force her to dance with him. The $225,000 ruling was handed down by a Federal judge in Las Vegas. (More Dennis Rodman stories.)
