    Ben Wallace sentenced to jail for Feburary car crash

    A vehicle registered to former Pistons great Ben Wallace who also played for the Cavaliers, Bulls and Wizards/Bullets was involved in a crash in Virginia last month. According to a witness, the SUV hit a residential fence, and a tall man angrily hit wood against the fence then left the vehicle behind.

    Now, Wallace, who previously pleaded guilty to drunk driving and possessing a firearm while under the influence of alcohol in a separate 2011 incident in Michigan, will pay for whatever happened in February.

    WTVR.com:

    Former NBA and Virginia Union University basketball star Ben Wallace entered a plea of no contest after he was arrested Tuesday for leaving the scene of a February car crash.

    Wallace received a one year jail sentence.

    The Henrico County judge suspended all but two days of the sentence. Wallace started serving his two day sentence Tuesday.

    This is just sad. Wallace frequently spoke about becoming a lawyer after his playing days. No doubt, these incidents will harm his ability to pursue that goal.

    Leaving the scene of a crash makes it hard to prove whether or not he was drunk. If he was, which is a possibility, he could have hurt someone. The fact that its a single car crash and nothing seemed to cause it leads me to believe he was drunk. Had there been people near by or on coming traffic this could have been a lot worse.

    Any sentence less than life is an outrage and a gross miscarriage of justice. What, me hold a grudge? OK, maybe a little.

    I wonder if they played Hells Bells in the courtroom when the sentence was handed down.

    One year is excessive.
