HAMPTON BAYS, N.Y. (AP) - Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge.
A judge placed Kidd on interim probation following the plea Tuesday. The coach also must speak to Long Island high school students about the dangers of drunken driving.
Kidd was arrested on July 15, 2012. Southampton Town police say he smashed his Cadillac SUV into a telephone pole in the hamlet of Water Mill. Police say he smelled of alcohol and his eyes were bloodshot and glassy.
Kidd retired as an NBA player after last season and was hired to coach the Nets. He took the team to two NBA Finals as a player when the franchise played in New Jersey.
