NBA star Jason Kidd, who just signed a three year 9.5 million dollar contract with the New York Knicks this week, was arrested Sunday and charged with DUI after he crashed his 2010 Cadillac Escalade into a telephone pole in Walter Mill, Long Island around 2 a.m. No one else was with Kidd in the vehicle when it crashed.
Earlier in the evening, Kidd and his wife had attended a benefit with other celebrities including Ne-Yo. The picture above shows Kidd, his wife and film-maker George Lucas at the event. According to the Daily News, “from there Kidd and his wife, former model Porschla Coleman, headed to nearby club SL East, sources say. His wife eventually headed home, leaving Kidd behind at the rowdy club, known for ultra-pricey bottle service and topless dancing patrons.”
The New York Post reports that “Kidd, 39, was treated at Southampton Hospital, processed at the Southampton police station and then released from court on his own recognizance, officials said.”
