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."

Hey David Stern how about some more boos and sweep this one under the rug. The NBA has become a joke with the Dwight Howard and now the J. Kidd saga. There is a reason people booed Stern during the lottery, he's lost control and let's the players rule the roost.
NFL>NBA.
