This isn't the kind of driving the Knicks had in mind.
An allegedly impaired Jason Kidd slammed his car into a light pole, leading to his arrest in the Hamptons this morning, police said.
Kidd, recently signed by the Knicks as an apparent replacement for popular point guard Jeremy Lin, was treated for minor injuries from the Cobb Road smash up, police said. He was then hauled to Southampton Justice Court where the NBA great was charged with DWI, police said.
The veteran hoopster was the only person inside his 2010 Cadillac Escalade when he crashed at 1:56 a.m., according to law enforcement.
