NYPost Authorities say former Los Angeles Lakers player and ex-New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after he flipped his vehicle on a California highway. The California Highway Patrol says neither Fisher nor his passenger, former “Basketball Wives” reality star Gloria Govan, were injured in the crash early Sunday. Authorities say Fisher was driving on US 101 in the Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles when his 2015 Cadillac veered onto the right shoulder while approaching an interchange. The car hit the shoulder’s concrete curb and guardrail, overturned and came to a rest on its roof. The Highway Patrol says officers discovered that Fisher had been drinking and he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
Former Los Angeles Lakers star and former New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher flipped his car on a Southern California highway, and when police responded to the scene, Fisher was arrested for DUI. Fisher’s girlfriend Gloria Govan, who was one of the stars of the reality show Basketball Wives and the ex-wife of NBA player Matt Barnes, was uninjured in the crash as was Fisher. When Fisher started dating Govan, Matt Barnes famously attacked Fisher, as he did not appreciate Fisher breaking an unwritten rule between NBA players and dating his ex-wife. Let’s call this DUI arrest “Matt Barnes’ revenge”.
