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.
Kidd was the lone passenger in the accident, which officials say happened around 2:00 a.m. Police described the basketball star as "being intoxicated."
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.
