According to law enforcement officials, the Basketball Wives star and her long-time boyfriend managed to avoid injury despite the severe nature of the accident.

The California Highway Patrol has issued a press release that states Fisher was driving northbound on the 101 freeway through Sherman Oaks, California when he veered to the right and on to the paved right shoulder of the road.

The car he was driving (a 2015 Cadillac) then proceeded across the right shoulder, colliding with the raised concrete curb and guardrail and flipping over.

Still, as previously mentioned, the CHP says there was “no injuries noted or claimed” at the time of the crash.

It took place at approximately 3 a.m.

Officials say that Fisher and the VH1 star were assisted out of the vehicle, at which time a DUI evaluation was conducted.

"During the collision investigation, it was discovered that Party #1 [Fisher] had been drinking," police say on the record, adding:

"A DUI evaluation was conducted and Party #1 was subsequently arrested for DUI without incident."

It was also noted in this report that Fisher was taken into custody without incident.

The stars have been a romantic item for over a year now.

Back in October of 2015, Fisher and NBA player Matt Barnes got into an intense brawl after the latter discovered that his ex-teammate was having sexual intercourse with his ex-wife.

Indeed, Barnes and Govan got married in August of 2013 and filed for divorce about two years later.

Fisher, meanwhile, played in the NBA for 20 years, 13 of which were with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The season after he retired, Fisher was hired to be the head coach of the New York Knicks, compiling a terrible 17-65 record in his first season.

He was subsequently fired in February of 2016 and has been working as an analyst for TNT and doing basketball coverage for Spectrum SportsNet over the past several months.

We believe this was his first arrest.
