Rodman, cameraman agree to settlement

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Dennis Rodman has been suspended again -- this time as Carl's Jr. preeminent pitchman.

CKE Restaurant spokeswoman Suzi Brown said Monday that a television commercial featuring Rodman was being pulled in response to the Chicago Bulls forward's recent kicking incident involving a cameraman.

"We decided, in light of what's going on, to pull his commercial from our campaign," Brown said. "I'm not sure if it's permanent or temporary, but we have pulled that commercial from our rotation."

The NBA suspended Rodman for at least 11 games, the second-longest suspension in league history. It also fined Rodman $25,000. The suspension will cost Rodman more than $1 million in salary.
