Report: Derek Fisher overturns car with Gloria Govan, arrested by CHP on suspicion of DUI


Former Los Angeles Lakers point guard and New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving early on Sunday morning.

Fisher was reportedly traveling with one passenger, “Basketball Wives” star Gloria Govan, when his car hit a guardrail and overturned on the 101 in Southern California.

Both passengers emerged unhurt, according to NBC Los Angeles.


The crash was a little after 3 a.m. on the westbound freeway, approaching the San Diego (405) Freeway interchange. Fisher, 42, was driving a 2015 Cadillac, the California Highway Patrol reported.

Fisher was driving in the number four lane, approaching the 405 interchange, when he allowed the vehicle to veer right and onto the paved right shoulder.

The Cadillac continued across the right shoulder and hit the raised concrete curb and wood/metal guardrail, on the shoulder.

The impact caused the vehicle to overturn, and it came to rest on its roof, blocking the three and four lanes of the northbound Ventura (101) Freeway.

Fisher was reportedly arrested without incident by the California Highway Patrol.

Govan, 32, was once married to Golden State Warriors forward Matt Barnes. The relationship between Fisher and Govan was what spurred a string of public issues between the two, starting with Barnes apparently texting a friend that he beat up Fisher and spat in Govan’s face in 2015.
