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.

You'd expect a DWI would be far worse than a DUI.

I can't believe the Knicks signed a 39 year old to a 3 year contract.

I thought that if you are drunk and crash with injuries it was an automatic felony, am I wrong?

I think it's hard to find a taxi in the Hamptons even when you have $9 million.

Why is he in a Dallas jersey in this photo? He's a Knick now. He refused to sign with Dallas and signed with the Knicks on July 5. He should have stayed in Dallas where he had no drama. He was a hero there. Bad karma in NY. Too many distractions.
