Newly-signed Jason Kidd pled not guilty to the DWI charges he faces. Kidd crashed his SUV into a ultility pole after a night of partying in the Hamptons.
The front of the SUV was totaled but Kidd did not suffer any serious injuries. Kidd blew a stop sign while travelling back to his $6 million summer home at 2 o’clock in the morning.
When the cops showed up, Kidd reported reeked of alcohol and didn’t have the ability to stand up straight on his feet. His eyes were bloodshot and watery. He refused a breathalyzer and later turned away chemical tests at the Southampton Hospital.
Sources say he was not fit to drive at all. He left the nightclub after breaking a light fixture he tried hanging from. The club-goers are said to have seen Kidd dancing and drinking vodka throughout the night.
Not a good start for Kidd’s tenure with the Knicks. I’m sure James Dolan isn’t pleased with him. Jason Kidd was always looked at as a role model in the NBA community. Hopefully this will be seen as a little blemish on Kidd’s goodie two-shoe career.
