0715_Jason-Kidd_gettyNBA star Jason Kidd was arrested for DWI this morning in New York ... Southampton Police tell TMZ ... after Kidd allegedly crashed his car into a telephone pole.

Kidd was the lone passenger in the accident, which police say happened around 1:56 AM. Police at the scene described Kidd as "being intoxicated."

He was taken to a local hospital to treat minor injuries. After being released from the hospital, he was transported to the local police station for processing.

Cops say the all-star point guard was then arraigned on a misdemeanor DWI charge in Southampton Town Justice Court and later released on his own recognizance.

Kidd won an NBA title with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011 ... but signed a three-year, $9.5 million deal with the Knicks on July 5.

The Knicks had no comment.

Money-and-Fame =


- everyone's keeping a really really close-eye-on-you ... pretending ...


-as-if they don't realize/know YOU just walked in.


-When you're rich or even just famous/notorious?


-EVERYONE'S your supervisor - everyone .


-Everyone's taking your inventory/judging.


-Everyone's thinking "hmmmph!" to themselves.


-if you walk with-too-much-perceived-Swag?


It'll be dutifully-reported next day and to the papers.


i.e. "I don't know WHO that dude thinks he is - why he only averaged 17 last year!"


There's no paranoia that equals THIS paranoia.


Why do you think Pitt and DeCaprio have to walk through airports -


Wearing a tent.


Fame makes you a stress case.


Period, end-of-story, have-a-nice-day.

I had no idea that DWI this morning was an actual charge. Is there a DWI this afternoon as well?
