Central Virginia television station WTVR is reporting a sport-utility vehicle belonging to former Detroit Piston Ben Wallace was involved in hit-and-run accident Saturday morning in Henrico County, Va.
According to the report, the SUV crashed into a fence at around 2 a.m. The owner of the fence, Silverio Acosta, said he found a portion of his fence in pieces.
“It was dark, but it’s clear from here I saw one person trying to fight to get out of the car,” Acosta told the station.
According to the report, the driver left the vehicle.
WTVR reports that police sources said the vehicle is registered to Wallace, who played for the Pistons from 2000-06 and 2009-2012, where he was a four-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and four-time All-Star.
Wallace pleaded guilty in 2011 in Oakland County to drunken driving and gun possession charges, and was sentenced to one year probation.
