Norm Nixon Busted for DUI

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.

For everyone's information that case was thrown out, beacause contrary to the report he did perform the filed sobriety test and passed, but that wasn't good enough for the field officer. He was pulled over at 10:45 while leaving a restaurant. The only reason they took him down is because his car doesn't have a front license plates, which is a common thing in LA. He also did not have to bail himself out. He was relaesed without having to pay bail. It's funny how TMZ was quick to report he was arrested, but not report that he was cleared of all charges.
