Ex-NBA star Derek Fisher was arrested on suspicion of a DUI Sunday after crashing-and flipping his car. Fisher was driving out in West Hollywood after a night out when the incident occurred.
Fisher was heading north on the Venture 101 freeway around 3am when the car flipped. He did have a passenger with him; his girlfriend of a few months “Basketball Wives” star Gloria Govan.
Thankfully, no one was injured, but they got off extremely lucky, because the damage to the vehicle was extensive. Authorities did place Fisher under arrest on suspicion of DUI.
Police say that the crash happened when Derek veered onto the paved right shoulder of the 101, which is east of the 405. The concrete curb is raised, and Fisher collided with that and the guardrail, which is what caused the vehicle to flip.
TMZ clocked Derek Fisher leaving the club just before midnight, but he didn’t have Govan with him, then, so he must have went elsewhere after. Fisher and Govan have been an item since March.
The couple is incredibly lucky that neither of them were hurt in the collision. Fisher is also lucky that no one else was injured.
