Just in case the Knicks point guard saga needed more drama, new Knick and veteran NBA point guard Jason Kidd was arrested this morning for DWI. Actually, all that's missing is a cameo from Isiah Thomas! Update below: Actually, all that was missing was a photo of Kidd apparently being carried out of a club.
Kidd was arrested after his 2010 Cadillac Escalade hit a telephone poll in Water Mill. According to Southampton Patch, "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. Kidd was arraigned on a misdemeanor DWI charge on Sunday morning in Southampton Town Justice Court and released on his own recognizance."
Kidd, a beloved former NJ Net who bought a house in Water Mill, was at a fundraiser held by NeYo honoring George Lucas last night. In 2007, Kidd's first wife accused him of abuse (he said she abused him, too).
Update: TMZ has a photo of what it claims is Jason Kidd being "carried out" (or supported) from a club. The gossip site reports that Kidd was "being carried out of a club called SL East. Multiple witness tell TMZ that Kidd appeared "incredibly drunk" -- so much so that at one point he tried to hang from a club light and broke it. According to the multiple witnesses, after being carried out by a few friends, Kidd got in his car to drive off ... despite protests from his friends. Kidd left the club around 1:00 AM and crashed his car less than an hour later."
