Getting arrested for a DUI has become trendy again, just as it was about ten years ago when everyone from Khloé Kardashian to Paris Hilton were sent to jail for driving under the influence. Just a week after Tiger Woods‘ now infamous DUI arrest, former Knicks coach Derek Fisher is joining the ranks.
On Sunday, Fisher was arrested on suspicion of DUI after crashing his car on the 101 Freeway following a night out at Catch in West Hollywood. TMZ reports that his Cadillac flipped over just after 3 a.m. PT as he was heading northbound on the Ventura 101 Freeway. The Highway Patrol confirmed that Fisher had been drinking before the crash.
Fisher’s boo Gloria Govan was riding shotgun in the front seat at the time of the accident. However, neither she nor Fisher were injured. A rep for the couple released a statement saying, “On behalf of Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan, they would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. They are beyond grateful that they are both okay and that no one else was involved. Both Derek and Gloria are home and ask that you respect their privacy.”
