NEW YORK (AP) -- Newly signed New York Knicks point guard Jason Kidd has been arrested on a drunken-driving charge after police said he crashed an SUV into a telephone pole in the Hamptons.

Southampton Town police say Kidd was released without bail after
being arraigned Sunday on a misdemeanor driving-while-intoxicated
charge. Police say Kidd was treated at Southampton Hospital for
minor injuries after his arrest.

His agent hasn't immediately answered phone or email messages.

Police say Kidd was alone in the Cadillac Escalade when it hit a
pole and veered into the woods around 2 a.m. Sunday in the hamlet
of Water Mill.

The Knicks signed the 39-year-old Kidd in free agency this week.
He'd played for the Dallas Mavericks since 2008.

He'd led the New Jersey Nets to two NBA Finals appearances.
