Derek Fisher Arrested For DUI After Crash

Former Knicks coach Derek Fisher was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving following an early-morning crash in Sherman Oaks, Calif., reports The Los Angeles Daily News.

The incident took place a little after 3 a.m. and resulted in Fisher’s 2015 Cadillac being flipped over onto its roof, according to the California Highway Patrol. He and a passenger, Gloria Govan, were both helped from the vehicle and neither appeared injured, police said. Govan was the subject of a 2015 altercation between Fisher and her ex-husband, Golden State’s Matt Barnes.

Fisher was arrested at the scene without incident, police reported.

After an 18-year NBA career, Fisher was hired to coach the Knicks in 2014. He was fired in February of 2016 with a 40-96 record. Fisher has been working as an analyst for TNT and recently expressed a desire to get back into coaching.

    Fisher has lost all respect and credibility and needs to get away from Govan…she obviously is trouble for him. He’ll never coach in the NBA again.

      With the career and fortune he accumulated I wouldn’t care much either.

      I agree that this woman seems to be followed by trouble.
