NBA All-Star Jason Kidd was arrested this morning for DUI this morning in New York State, reportedly for crashing into a telephone pole in the Hamptons.

The crash occurred near Kidd's summer home on Long Island.

The future Hall of Fame member was taken to a local hospital to treat minor injuries but luckily was generally unharmed after the single-car crash.

After being released from the hospital, he was transported directly to a local police station for processing and booked for driving under the influence.

Cops say that Kidd was arraigned on a misdemeanor DUI charge in Southampton Town Justice Court and then released on his own recognizance.

Jason Kidd, 39, won an NBA title with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011; he signed a three-year, $9.5 million deal with the New York Knicks on July 5.

NY Knick, Jason Kidd was arrested for drunk driving the summer of 2012 after his vehicle was in a serious collision. He was charged with DWI and later appeared for court. Good thing no one was injured in the accident. Most states have implied consent laws which means that you must comply with a test or face fines and/or license suspension – sometimes right on the spot – for refusing to take the test. Some states have abandoned the urine test due to reliability issues. The driver usually gets his choice of the available tests.

Actually the term lone passenger is fairly appropriate. Lone means one person, and passenger is commonly used to mean any person traveling in a vehicle. All hypocrisy aside, it is overly critical to interigate every word someone uses in the fashion you've done here. Any etymologist will tell you that language is ever evolving, and most words can/have been adapted many times in the way it occured above. That's how new usage evolves. I think the expression for thisthe situation goes "If you have nothing nice to say, then shut your yap and cut the crap."

He was a "lone passenger"? That implies that no one was driving! I think "occupant" is the word you should've used. I'm amazed by some of the articles online. Doesn't anyone use an editor anymore?!
