Authorities Monday released Jason Kidd’s mug shot, following the veteran NBA star’s weekend DWI arrest in New York.
As we previously reported, Kidd was taken into custody at 2 am ET Sunday on suspicion of driving-while-intoxicated after he careened his 2010 Cadillac Escalade into a telephone pole in Southampton. Despite a little bruise on his face, he was not seriously hurt in the accident. Kidd was coming from a benefit in honor of George Lucas at a private estate in East Hampton.
Following his arrest, Kidd, 39, pleaded not guilty during his arraignment on a misdemeanor driving-while-intoxicated charge. He was released without bail, police said.
The accident came just three days after the well-traveled point guard inked a a $9.5 million deal with the New York Knicks. A two-time Olympic gold medalist, Kidd has the second-most assists and steals in NBA history.
