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."

Wow, on that picture with George Lucas he looks very dark. Isn't he kind of like a Kris Humphries complexion normally? Maybe it's the alcohol that made him temporarily change color...haha.

Wow, his friends let him take off in that state, falling down drunk....I would have yanked his keys away and took him home. No question.

What kind of person would put a person that f**ked up behind the wheel of a car?
.
First thing Kidd should do is delete every one of those people off of his phone.

The "friends" were probably drunk also. Hopefully he learned a lesson. Drunk = stupid.

If he had killed himself or someone else would the club be responsible?

He should check himself into an alcohol treatment center, he is not a college kid anymore. This is a man who is approaching middle age and it is a poor example he is setting for his children. His kids will have to hear people at school asking why their father gets so drunk he has to be carried out of clubs, not to mention he is either going to kill himself or someone else when he gets behind the wheel in this condition. This is no joke, he needs help now

Why didn't the club cut him off long before he left?
Photos to share with his children. Does this add to his "street cred?"

" somehow.

I would say that some of the liability falls on the club. After all they can be seen caring him out.
