Jason Kidd, a newly signed player for the New York Knicks, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated early Sunday after his vehicle struck a utility pole, Southampton Police said.
Kidd, 39, was the only occupant of the vehicle, police said. He was taken to Southampton Hospital for treatment of minor injuries, then transported to police headquarters for processing on charges of driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor. He was arraigned and released on his own recognizance, police said.
Kidd signed with the Knicks on July 12, becoming the team's point guard.
