Police arrested former New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher on Sunday after crashing his car.

Former New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher crashed his car at 3 a.m. PT while driving on the Ventura 101 Freeway. The former NBA player and coach’s car flipped upon hitting a guardrail, according to TMZ Sports. When police arrived on the scene, Fisher was arrested and charged with a DUI.

He was joined by Gloria Govan, whose name might sound familiar to New York Knick fans. Govan was the wife of Warriors player Matt Barnes. Fisher and Barnes had an altercation during the 2015 offseason over Fisher’s relationship with Govan.

Fisher and Govan were not harmed in the accident.

Fisher sported a 40-96 career coaching record with the Knicks. Although the Knicks struggled to win games under Fisher, many believe Fisher’s extracurricular activities off the basketball court with Govan and Barnes turned off many within the organization.
