SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Jason Kidd, hired to coach the Brooklyn Nets just days after retiring as a player, has a pending court case in New York stemming from a drunken driving arrest.
Kidd has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor DWI. Suffolk County prosecutors on eastern Long Island said Thursday afternoon that Kidd is due in Southampton Town Court on July 11.
Defense attorney Edward Burke Jr., declined to comment on the charges, saying several legal motions filed in the case have yet to be decided.
Kidd suffered minor injuries when his vehicle hit a pole and veered into the woods in Water Mill last July. Kidd later posted a message on Twitter saying he regretted what happened.
The misdemeanor charge carries up to a year in jail.
