HENRICO (WRIC) - Former NBA and Virginia Union University basketball star Ben Wallace plead no contest after he was arrested Tuesday for leaving the scene of a February car crash.
Wallace was sentenced to a year in prison, with all but two days suspended, according to online court records.
On February 8, a SUV registered to Wallace slammed through a fence outside a home off Gaskins Road and Peppertree Drive in Henrico's West End. When officers arrived, the vehicle was empty. The resulting investigation led detectives to Wallace, who was charged.
