A man who allegedly crashed a Bentley belonging to Lakers player Jordan Hill early Saturday morning was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving at Hill's condominium complex, authorities said.

Michael Lacey, 26, allegedly ran the car into the condo complex at 13900 Marquesas Way in Marina del Rey shortly before 2 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Police found the wrecked vehicle unattended and located Lacey inside Hill's condominium. The Laker was home at the time.

A dispatcher said there was no evidence that the car had been stolen. KCAL-9 reported the two men went to high school together. 

The dispatcher said Lacey "displayed objective signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication while speaking with the officers" and was arrested. 

Lacey and a passenger -- not Hill -- were treated for minor injuries and no one else was hurt or involved in the crash, the dispatcher said.
