What do you do when you sign a three-year, $9.5 million deal with the New York Knicks? If you’re Jason Kidd, you go on a bender, wrap your SUV around a utility pole and get booked.
Kidd was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving near his Southampton summer home early Sunday. Police found him sitting in his crashed Escalade. He was helped from his car and according to the arrest report: “did not know what had happened.”
He did have the presence of mind to refuse a breathalyzer and chemical tests, however. He was arraigned and released.
Prior to the crash, Kidd — inked by the Knicks to bring veteran leadership to the squad (uh huh) — was reportedly partying at an East Hampton nightclub.
The par-tay followed a benefit for Ne-Yo’s Compound Foundation, a charity for kids in foster care and group homes.
Oh yeah, we ballin’.
