3/17/2009 1:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Norm NixonFormer 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.

Fun fact -- Norm Nixon is married to Debbie Allen of "Fame" fame.
