Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd will serve “interim probation” after pleading guilty to his DWI charge in court on Tuesday. Kidd crashed his SUV into a utility pole last July after a night of partying in the Hamptons soon after he signed with the Knicks.
According to USA Today:
Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd pleaded guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge and was placed on interim probation nearly a year after he smashed his Cadillac SUV into a utility pole on eastern Long Island.
In exchange for the guilty plea, Kidd agreed to speak to Long Island high school students about the dangers of drunken driving. If he fulfills his community service, his plea will be reduced to a violation — driving while ability impaired — when he returns to court on Sept. 30.
