New York Knicks point guard Jason Kidd was arrested early Sunday and charged with a misdemeanor of driving while intoxicated, according to Southampton Town police.
A police spokesman said Kidd was involved in a single-car accident in which his 2010 Cadillac Escalade struck a telephone pole and went into the woods in hamlet of Water Mill at around 2 a.m. Water Mill is a serene, mainly residential community east of Southampton Village.
“Jason was involved in a single vehicle accident on his way back home from a charity function last night,” Kidd’s attorney, Ed Burke Jr., said in a statement. “He suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from a local hospital. Jason has pleaded not guilty to a DWI charge and awaits further court proceedings.”
