Newly signed New York Knicks point guard Jason Kidd has been arrested for driving drunk in New York. Kidd allegedly crashed his 2010 Cadillac Escalade, hitting a pole and veering into the woods around 2 a.m.

Commenting on the accident, Kidd’s attorney, Ed Burke Jr, said in a statement that Kidd was returning from a charity function before his accident, pleaded not guilty to the DWI charge, and was awaiting further court proceedings. If convicted of a DWI the sentence careers up to one year in jail.

Things are not off to a great start for the newly revamped Knicks.
