Jason Kidd was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated on Long Island on Sunday morning, after he allegedly crashed his SUV into a telephone pole. Though driving while over the legal limit is never a good thing, details about his arrest are starting to come to light, indicating that Kidd was more than just a little bit intoxicated.
According to the police report of the incident from Southampton, New York, Kidd "did not know what had happened in accident." He also admitted to the police that he had "a few drinks," though he did not admit that he was intoxicated. In fact, he reportedly refused a Breathalyzer at the scene of his arrest, then refused a blood test after he was admitted to a local hospital.
Kidd also "smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage, he had slurred speech, [was] very unsteady afoot and had bloodshot, watery and glassy eyes," according to the police report. Hilariously, he also reportedly knocked out some service of Cablevision by crashing into a telephone pole, a company owned by his new boss, James Dolan.
