The driver of a 2007 Bentley owned by Lakers forward Jordan Hill was arrested Saturday morning after crashing into a Marina del Rey building while under the influence, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Hill was neither driving nor in the passenger of his car during the crash that happened at 1:55 a.m. Hill was questioned about the incident but not arrested, according to CHPO officials.
The driver was identified as Michael Lacey, 26, who was riding with an unidentified passenger.
Hill has remained sidelined for the past two months because of season-ending surgery on his left hip. He’s scheduled to meet with doctors in two weeks to determine the slim possibility he could return in late April or May, assuming the Lakers make the playoffs. He had appeared in 29 games averaging 6.7 points and 5.7 rebounds in 15.8 minutes.
