Jason Kidd Pleads Guilty to DWI Charge

A Marlin/Getty Images(HAMPTON BAYS, N.Y.) -- Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd was placed on interim probation Tuesday, after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge.

The 40-year-old Kidd was arrested for DWI on July 15, 2012 after crashing his SUV into a telephone pole in Water Mill, which is located on Eastern Long Island. The police report stated he smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot and glassy eyes, and wasn’t able to maintain balance.

Kidd’s plea could be reduced to a violation, driving while ability impaired, when he returns to court Sept. 30 if he successful completes his community service of speaking with Long Island high school students about the dangers of drunken driving.
