Jason Kidd should really look into investing in a driver!
Newly-signed Knicks point guard Jason Kidd was arrested for drunk driving early Sunday morning after crashing his 2010 Cadillac Escapade into a pole!
According to the NY Daily News:
The 39-year-old basketball star slammed into a wooden utility pole, snapping it in two near his Water Mill home about 2 a.m. His knucklehead antics knocked out cable service to customers of his new boss — Cablevision and Knicks honcho James Dolan.
Witnesses said the boozed-up baller sat there for about 45 minutes before cops arrived. The crash came just four days after Kidd signed a three-year, $9.5 million deal to bring his veteran leadership and point guard prowess to the Knicks.
Kidd was treated at Southampton Hospital and then hauled off to court where he faces a misdemeanor. He was released on his own recognizance after his Sunday morning arraignment.
“Jason has pleaded not guilty to a DWI charge and awaits further court proceedings,” said Kidd’s lawyer, Ed Burke Jr.
