Jason Kidd

Carried Out of Club

Before DWI Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

0715_escorted_wm_arrowMultiple witnesses tell TMZ ... NBA star Jason Kidd appeared to be so drunk in the moments leading up to his DWI arrest ... that he had to be carried out of the club he spent the night partying at. 

TMZ has obtained a photo of the all-star point guard being carried out of a club called SL East. Multiple witness tell TMZ that Kidd appeared "incredibly drunk" -- so much so that at one point he tried to hang from a club light and broke it.

According to the multiple witnesses, after being carried out by a few friends, Kidd got in his car to drive off ... despite protests from his friends. Kidd left the club around 1:00 AM and crashed his car less than an hour later.

Earlier in the evening, Kidd tweeted a photo of himself (wearing the same gray shirt as in the photo above) alongside George Lucas at a charity event.

Kidd's attorney, Ed Burke Jr., tells TMZ, "Jason was involved in a single vehicle accident on his way back home from a charity function last night. He suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from a local hospital. Jason has pleaded not guilty to a DWI charge and awaits further court proceedings."

"Carried out by FRIENDS"? Uh don't think so. A friend would not let someone in that condition drive. That is awful. Jason dried up a while back. Sad to see him return to an old bad habit. Hoping the best for him. Hated to see him leave us in Dallas.

really?    

The douches that LET him get into the car are just as guilty as he is. If he had to be helped getting TO his car, then it took help getting him IN his car. They are ALL losers!!!!!

He wasn't at the club alone. Several people SAW him drunk, and they sent him away in his vehicle. How irresponsible of them to let him leave in that condition! He was drunk. Drunk people aren't known for having the best judgment. If he was so messed up that he couldn't walk, someone should have intervened. He's lucky he didn't get himself or someone else killed.

LOL, kid was arrested for beating his wife right before phoenix traded him. Its because he's an asset the fans go nuts over for trading. You have to make him a big enough villian that they want to get rid of him.

The club should be partially responsible for this throwing him out that drunk and not making sure he had a ride.
