Former New York Knicks coach and Los Angeles Lakers point guard Derek Fisher has been formally charged with two counts of DUI after he allegedly flipped his car on U.S. Route 101.

Fisher, 42, was driving with Gloria Govan when he flipped the car. Govan is the ex-wife of Golden State Warriors forward Matt Barnes. Both escaped the crash without injury.

The car Fisher was driving was apparently registered to Barnes. The two were famously involved in an incident in 2015 in which Barnes drove to Govan’s house and fought with Fisher. Barnes was suspended by the NBA for two games before the incident.

Fisher has said that he is just glad that both are okay. What is next ahead for him will be having to deal with the California justice system.
