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.
