Jason Kidd will be fighting his recent DWI charge during the start of the NBA season.
Kidd, who signed to the New York Knicks this year, was arrested for driving under the influence after he crashed his car into a telephone pole in the Hamptons.
Kidd’s lawyer told the Southampton Town Court judge that the NBA star plans on fighting his DWI charge.
Edward Burke Jr. said:
“He is taking this very, very seriously. He wants to get this past him as quickly as possible. The legal process takes some time but he is ready for his season.”
According to NewJersey.com, Kidd won’t get his legal problems entirely out of the way until after the start of the NBA season. Kidd’s next scheduled court date is Nov. 7, a week into the NBA season. The Knicks do not play on November 7th.
Kidd was arrested in July after he crashed his car into a pole. The officer on the scene said that he smelled alcohol on Kidd but the NBA star refused to take a breathalyzer. It was also reported that Kidd had to be carried out of the bar a few hours earlier because he was so intoxicated.
