Former NBA Star Arrested on DUI Charges After Car Accident

Former Los Angeles Laker and ex-head coach of the New York Knicks Derek Fisher was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, according to the New York Post, after he crashed his car this morning. Neither Fisher nor his passenger, Gloria Govan, were injured. Govan is Fisher’s former teammate Matt Barnes’s ex-wife. Fisher has been dating Govan since 2015.

Fisher was driving in Los Angeles County when his car veered towards the side of the freeway and hit a metal guard. The car was overturned and came to a stop in the middle of the road. Fisher and Govan were helped from the car. The responding authorities at the scene of the crash determined that Fisher had been drinking and arrested him on DUI charges.
