Kidd charged with DWI

New York Knicks point guard Jason Kidd was arrested early Sunday and charged with a misdemeanor of driving while intoxicated, according to Southampton Town police.

A police spokesman said Kidd was involved in a single-car accident in which his 2010 Cadillac Escalade struck a telephone pole and went into the woods in hamlet of Watermill.

Kidd suffered minor injuries, according to the spokesman, and was treated at Southampton Hospital.

He was then transferred to police headquarters to be processed. He was held for arraignment Sunday morning and was released on his own recognizance.
