Los Angeles Lakers forward Jordan Hill not only has to worry about his team making the playoffs this season but now must deal with a serious car crash.
Earlier Saturday morning (Mar. 30), Hill’s Bentley smashed into an apartment complex in Marina Del Rey, damaging the patio area within the vicinity. The California Highway Patrol responded to the crash at 2:15 a.m. at the Esprit condominium complex at 13900 Marquesas Way.
“Hill was not inside the car at the time of the crash,” said Ed Jacobs, a CHP spokesman. “A man identified as Michael Lacey, 26, was booked into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence.”
Lacey is pursuing his masters in athletic administration and is a graduate assistant for student support at Idaho State University.
Officials said there was one other person inside the Bentley when the crash happened, but it’s not known whether or not that person was hurt.
