Jason Kidd found himself in a jail cell temporarily yesterday following a car accident involving only himself and his now crashed car.

TMZ reports:

NBA star Jason Kidd was arrested for DWI this morning in New York … Southampton Police tell TMZ … after Kidd allegedly crashed his car into a telephone pole.

Kidd was the lone passenger in the accident, which police say happened around 1:56 AM. Police at the scene described Kidd as “being intoxicated.”

He was taken to a local hospital to treat minor injuries. After being released from the hospital, he was transported to the local police station for processing.

Cops say the all-star point guard was then arraigned on a misdemeanor DWI charge in Southampton Town Justice Court and later released on his own recognizance.

You can see just how allegedly drunk Jason Kidd was at the club here.
