Another athlete gets into hot legal water.
Just one week after professional golfer Tiger Woods got arrested for DUI, former NBA player Derek Fisher was taken into custody for suspicion of driving drunk.
The California Highway Patrol tells HipHollywood that on Sunday morning, Fisher and his girlfriend Gloria Govan were driving on U.S. Route 101 in Sherman Oaks, Calif., when the 2015 Cadillac Derek was driving flipped over and landed on its roof.
According to highway patrol, the former Lakers player’s car veered into the right shoulder of the freeway and hit the concrete curb and guardrail. After point of impact, the vehicle overturned and landed on its roof, blocking two lanes of the freeway.
When officials arrived to the scene, they concluded that Fisher had been driving while under the influence.
Neither Derek nor Gloria, who both were uninjured, have responded to the arrest.
