He collided with the raised concrete curb and guardrail, which flipped his car over once. Luckily, the crash left both Fisher and his passenger, reality TV star Gloria Govan, uninjured.However, once officers arrived to the scene, they determined Fisher had been drinking and arrested him on suspicion of DUI.TMZ caught up with Fisher Saturday night leaving Catch (restaurant) at 11:45pm, but the crash occurred later at 3am (see the video above).
He apparently picked up Gloria after dinner, because she wasn’t at Catch with him. He and Govan have been an item since March. Fisher, a resident of Tarzana was the Knicks coach from 2014-2016, played 18 years in the National Basketball Association, spending a majority of his career with Lakers and was an integral part of five NBA championships with the team.
