Former five-time NBA champion and Los Angeles Lakers star Derek Fisher was arrested last month on suspicion of drunk driving. Now, he’s being charged with two counts of DUI according to TMZ:

He was arrested last month after his car was overturned in a single-car accident. Fisher was driving a 2015 Cadillac when his vehicle veered right, continued across the right shoulder and hit the raised concrete curb and wood/metal guardrail, according to a California Highway Patrol account.
The car was actually registered to Matt Barnes, former husband of Fisher’s romantic interest Gloria Govan. Fisher could face up to six months in jail if he is convicted on both counts of DUI. The likelihood is that he will get off without a minute in jail because it is his first offense.
He will likely end up on probation, be fined and will have to complete an alcohol education course as TMZ describes it.
