Jason Kidd's Wrecked Car
This is what happens when you drink and drive and crash into a light pole ... allegedly.

Jason Kidd was lucky to emerge from this 2010 Cadillac Escalade with his life after his early morning collision in the Hamptons on July 15. The photo was taken by our friends at the New York Daily News.

As we previously reported, Kidd was arrested for driving while intoxicated following the crash.

In the hours leading up to the crash, Kidd was partying at a club and appeared so drunk, he had to be carried out of the place.

For some reason, he got behind the wheel ... and drove into a telephone pole.

After the crash, Kidd's lawyer released a statement saying, "Jason has pleaded not guilty to a DWI charge and awaits further court proceedings."

We all know Jason is NOT guilty! One of the Kennedys slipped an Ambien into his non-alcoholic beer and he drove off and crashed. Not guilty, next case please!

For an older player, he can still drive hard to the post.

Light pole?? Really? Look at that damage. Looks like he hit a wall or hit another car head on. That damage is not from a light pole.

Pleading not guilty?

For just once, I'd like to see a celebrity step up and admit they screwed up, before a judge, if they've been caught red handed.

If you were drunk Jason, man up, admit it and move on.

Don't take it out on Porschla. After all, she's not Joumana.

I had to google Jason Kidd to even know who he was. But I only watch Golf and Racing, I know golf is boring. But i play golf for money every week and race at iRacing online for credits.

Not Guilty? I'm sure he's going to say something about being tired or his meds didn't agree with him.. or someone else was driving.
Jason you did it.. there is the proof in the picture. Be a man not a coward... own up to it!

Lawyers? Are there no ethics what so ever in them? Kidd, pleads not guilty? When will people admit when they did something wrong, apologize and take the punishment? Now I will always look at Jason Kidd as a lying drunk instead of a great basketball player that made a mistake like all of us do and was man enough to take responsibility.

I wouldn't say Jason was lucky... I would say all the innocent people on the roads around him was luck they were not killed by his actions. Drunk drivers should be jailed on first offence. The jerk should be used as an example and if he was truly concerned for how his actions should be viewed, he should take responsiblity and speak out about the perils of Drinking and Driving. But alas, it will be hiding behind a lawer and working to get off on a technicallity, again proving that you can drink, drive and potentially kill innocent people as long as you have the money for a good lawer. I have zero tolerance for people who drink and drive.
