Report: Derek Fisher arrested on suspicion of DUI following car accident
The former Laker player and Knicks coach could be facing legal trouble
According to a report from ESPN, Former Knicks coach and Lakers point guard Derek Fisher was arrested on suspicion of DUI Sunday after his car was found flipped over in Los Angeles. Neither Fisher nor his passenger were injured after the accident.
Authorities say Fisher was driving on U.S. 101 in the Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles when his 2015 Cadillac veered onto the right shoulder while approaching an interchange.
The car hit the shoulder's concrete curb and guardrail, overturned and came to a rest on its roof.
The Highway Patrol says officers discovered that Fisher had been drinking and he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
Fisher retired as a player in 2014 and immediately joined the Knicks staff as their head coach. He was fired during the middle of his second season after losing 9 of his previous 10 games. He's been a TV analyst on multiple shows since his firing.
Fisher played in the NBA for 20 years, spent 13 of them with the Lakers, and was the National Basketball Players Association president late into his career. However, he can't seem to escape negative headlines as of late.
