From the looks of things, Jason Kidd is very blessed to be alive today. And furthermore, he’s blessed that all he has to deal with after doing that to a SUV is being arrested for DUI.
And we’re not the only ones that believe that Kidd is very lucky to be alive today. A police officer who was summoned to the scene was also in awe of the damage to the SUV and that Kidd actually survived.
“That’s really his car? Wow,” said one NYPD vet who has 15 years on the force and has seen his fair share of car accidents. “I can’t believe Jason Kidd actually survived that. When I see an accident that bad, I expect at least serious injury, if not death.”
Then we have details of what reportedly went on at the East Hampton club that night.
A source told the Daily News that the newly signed Knick’s night started at a boozy benefit party where liquor flowed freely and bottles of red wine awaited at every table.
“There was booze on every table, and the people kept bringing drinks,” the source told The News.
In addition to the wine, guests were treated to Malibu Red cocktails — a potent mixture of tequila and rum, the source indicated.
The source said it was unclear how much the future Hall of Famer knocked back, but authorities said he was reeking of alcohol and slurring his words a few hours later.
We don’t know what Jason Kidd has been doing with his time since his arrest, but he should be thanking God that he’s still alive right now.
