03-19-14-benwallace-tmzEx-NBA superstar Ben Wallace is now a FREE MAN ... after spending 16 hours behind bars for a hit-and-run accident back in February. 

Wallace began his stint on Tuesday when he was sentenced to 2 days in the slammer for leaving the scene of an accident when he crashed his SUV through a fence in Virginia and fled on February 8th. 

But after 16 grueling hours ... Wallace was released. 

But Ben's time in lockup wasn't the shortest celebrity stint -- that honor would probably go to Nicole Richie ... who only spent 82 minutes in jail from a 2006 DUI. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
