Kidd was arraigned on a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge in the Hamptons early Sunday morning after crashing his 2010 Cadillac Escalade into a telephone pole, according to the Southampton Patch.
Officers responded to the crash at 1:56 a.m., police said. Kidd had no passengers in his SUV, and no other vehicles were involved.
The crash occurred near Kidd’s house in Walter Mill, which he purchased last year for a reported $5.97 million. He signed a three-year, $9.5 million contract with the Knicks on Thursday.
