Jason Kidd has made headlines in New York for recently signing a three year contract with the Knicks but made the papers this weeked for all the wrong reasons.

Police in Southampton say they responded to an accident scene at around 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning and found Kidd behind the wheel of a 2010 Cadillac Escalade that had driven off the road into a wooded area, crashing into and snapping a telephone pole, according to Newsday.

The report says Kidd refused blood and chemical tests and was subsequently arrested for DWI.

Earlier on Saturday night, Kidd had attended a benefit event for movie director George Lucas, the report says.
