When the Knicks aquired Jason Kidd, I said he’d bring a level of respect that the team sorely needs. Uh, nevermind…
From the SouthHamptonPatch:
Just days after signing with the New York Knicks, Jason Kidd was arrested Sunday morning on an alleged drunken driving charge after a single-car crash, according to Southampton Town police.
Police said that Kidd’s 2010 Cadillac Escalade struck a telephone pole and went into the woods near the intersection of Cobb Road and Little Cobb Road in Water Mill, not far from his Hamptons house. Police responded at 1:56 a.m.
Kidd, 39, was alone in the car, according to police. He was transported to Southampton Hospital for minor injuries and released into police custody.
Kidd was arraigned on a misdemeanor DWI charge on Sunday morning in Southampton Town Justice Court and released on his own recognizance.
Sag Harbor attorney Eddie Burke Jr. said he was on his way to speak with Kidd. “We await further discovery from the district attorney’s office,” Burke said.
Kidd signed a three-year, $9.5 million deal with the Knicks on Thursday
