Jason Kidd's mugshot is out after his arrest on suspicion of DWI over the weekend. The look on his face gives us a good idea into what he was probably thinking. 'Man, I f***ed up.' Or maybe he was thinking, 'I'm lucky to be alive.'
Unfortunately, Kidd wasn't thinking at all when he got behind the wheel, when, according to TMZ, he was so wasted he had to be carried out of the bar where he was partying, and then still drove off and allegedly smashed through a utility pole. Allegedly. That bruise on his cheek might allegedly be from the steering wheel.
Not to be Mr. Preachy, but Kidd has earned north of $150 million in his career, he could afford a driver or a cab. He's nearly 40-years-old. He doesn't have enough sense that when he's trashed that driving might not be the best idea? Word is that his friends were pleading with him not to drive. Guess they didn't put up too much resistance. Not the best way to get ingratiate yourself to the Knicks, who just signed you for $9 million over three years.
