Jason Kidd gets probation for DWI Published: July 16, 2013

Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd pleaded guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge and was placed on interim probation nearly a year after he smashed his Cadillac SUV into a utility pole, according to USA Today.

The paper reports Kidd has agreed to speak to Long Island high school students about the dangers of drunken driving.

Kidd, who retired as an NBA player after last season, was recently hired to coach the Nets — the team he took to two NBA Finals as a player when the franchise played in New Jersey, USA Today reports.
