Hey, that’s Norm Nixon … didn’t you just get a DUI’d?

Strange as it may seem, this was pointed out to us tonight: Norm Nixon managed to make it to his FSWest committment on the Lakers’ post-game show after the game against Philly just 18 hours after he was out of jail from on a DUI charge.

Norm Nixon Busted for DUI
Posted Mar 17th 2009 12:44PM by TMZ Staff

Former NBA legend Norm Nixon was arrested last night on suspicion of DUI.

Nixon was pulled over by California Highway Patrol just before midnight for having no front license plate on his black Ferrari. We’re told officers smelled alcohol, so they gave him a series of field sobriety tests — which he performed “poorly.”

Nixon — best known for his stint with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 70s and 80s — was booked and posted $5,000 bail.
