Jason Kidd Arrested For Drunken Driving, According To Report

Jason Kidd, the newly signed veteran point guard of the New York Knicks, was involved in a single-car cash and arrested on drunk driving charges early Sunday morning, according to a report by The Southhampton Patch.

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.

On Thursday, Kidd inked a three-year, $9.5 million deal with the Knicks. In 2001, while a member with the Phoenix Suns, Kidd had a run-in with the law as he was arrested and pled guilty to domestic violence charges.
