Derek Fisher Pleads No Contest to DUI
Derek Fisher has pled no contest to DUI stemming from a June 5 crash in which he flipped his SUV on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles.
Fisher previously pled not guilty to 2 misdemeanor counts of DUI — but struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which he pled no contest to driving with a B.A.C. of .08 and got probation and 100 hours of community service (or 10 full days).
He’s also required to install an ignition interlock device in his car — which will monitor his breath before he can start the vehicle.
There’s more … Fisher must participate in a MADD victim impact panel where he will speak with families of victims in drunk driving accidents. Plus, he’s been ordered to complete a 3-month-long alcohol education class.
After the incident, Fisher told his fans the situation will NEVER happen again.
